EEG (ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM) EXAMINATIONS
Adult and Paediatric EEG examination
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a non-invasive test which records neuronal activity in the brain. Small electrodes are applied to the scalp and, because the recording has to detect the small electrical signals generated by the brain, it helps to have clean dry hair which is free from oils, gels or hairspray. The electrical signals from the brain are amplified and processed to provide a graphic representation of the brain’s many electrical rhythms.
Partial Sleep-deprived EEG examination
Adult Prolonged EEG recordings
Prolonged EEG – This is an extended recording with the electrodes being attached to a portable recorder so you will be able to move around the laboratory and office during the hours of the recording. The best recording is obtained while seated quietly so you should bring along suitable reading material to occupy your time during this EEG recording.
