Electroencephalogram (EEG)

doc-eegAn Electroencephalogram, or EEG, records the electrical activity of the brain. This is done through the use of small discs, or electrodes, that record the activity. These electrodes are attached to a patient’s scalp using a special paste.

If needed, the patient may be asked to breathe deeply, look at bright flashing lights intermittently, and even have the testing video recorded to help in diagnosing a patient’s condition.

An EEG aids the doctor in diagnosing if there are any problems and determining the type of treatment needed if required.
