In brief: Many causes

There are many causes of a mildly abnormal eeg from sleepiness (which can look like slowing) to medications, to medical problems causing a confusional state (delirium) to stroke and so on.
Mildly abnormal eeg's are also sometimes seen in people without a definite neurological problem.
