An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test to measure the
electrical activity of the brain.

EEG is used to look at your brain
activity. It can help diagnose seizures. It may
also be used to diagnose or monitor the
following health conditions: Abnormal changes
in body chemistry that affect the brain
 Brai diseases such as Alzhei er’s disease
 Confusion
 Head injuries
 Infections
 Tumors

EEG is also used to:
 Evaluate problems with sleep ( sleep disorders)
 Investigate periods of unconsciousness
 Monitor the brain during brain surgery

An EEG may be done to show that
the brain has no activity, in the case of
someone who is in a deep coma. It can be
helpful when trying to decide if someone is
brain dead.
EEG cannot be used to measure intelligence.

RISKS:The procedure is very safe. However,
the flashing lights or fast breathing
(hyperventilation) required during the test
may trigger seizures in those with seizure
disorders. The health care provider
performing the EEG is trained to take care of
you if this happens.
It may be difficult to get the paste
out of your hair, but it should come out after a
few washings with regular shampoo.
