Description

Electroencephalography is the neurophysiologic measurement of the electrical activity of the brain by recording from electrodes placed on the scalp or, in special cases, subdurally or in the cerebral cortex . The resulting traces are known as an electroencephalogram (EEG) and represent an electrical signal (postsynaptic potentials) from a large number of neurons. These are sometimes called brainwaves , though this use is discouraged [1] . The EEG is a brain function test, but in clinical use it is a "gross correlate of brain activity" [2] . Electrical currents are not measured, but rather voltage differences between different parts of the brain.

Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
* Define the term Electroencephalography (EEG) and explain its role in diagnostic medicine today.
* List the clinical uses for EEG.
* Identify the advantages and limitations of EEG in clinical use.
* Explain what is meant by “artifacts” and provide some examples of the different types of artifacts.
* Describe the use of artificial neural networks for automatic description and interpretation of the electroencephalogram.
