Electroencephalography (EEG)

Electroencephalography (EEG)

What is Electroencephalography ?

Electroencephalography (EEG) is an electrophysiological tracking technique to record the electric activity of the brain. It is usually non-invasive, with the electrodes positioned alongside the scalp, even though invasive electrodes are from time to time used, as in electrocorticography, sometimes known as intracranial EEG.

EEG Test Procedure

An EEG scan tracks and records brain wave patterns. Small flat metallic discs known as electrodes are connected to the scalp with wires. The electrodes examine electric impulses withinside the mind and send alerts to a computer that records the results. Electrical impulses in an EEG recording appear to be wavy strains with peaks and valleys. These lines allow physicians to quickly assess for abnormal patterns. Any irregularity can be a sign of seizures or other brain disorders.

What are the uses of EEG?

The Purpose of Electroencephalography(EEG) is to discover issues withinside the electric activity of the brain that can be related to certain mental disorders. Measurements given with the aid of using an EEG are used to verify or rule out numerous conditions, including:

  • Seizure disorders (such as epilepsy)
  • Head injury
  • Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain)
  • Brain tumor
  • Encephalopathy (a disease that causes brain dysfunction)
  • Memory problems
  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Sleep disorders

When someone is in a coma, an EEG can be done to determine the level of brain activity. it is also used to monitor the activity of the brain during surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

EEG helps detect brain electrical activity to diagnose epilepsy, sleep disorders, and brain injuries.

EEG measures the electrical activity of the brain using electrodes placed on the scalp. The brain waves, which are small electrical signals generated by neuronal activity, can be detected through this process.

EEG and electroencephalogram are the same terms that describe the process of capturing electrical brain activity.

Indications for EEG include diagnosing epilepsy, monitoring brain function, and studying sleep patterns.

EEG is painless; electrodes are attached to the scalp's surface.
