Electroencephalography (EEG) and Epilepsy

If epilepsy is suspected, there are many neurological tests available to help with the diagnosis. Electroencephalography, or EEG, is the most specific test for diagnosing epilepsy because it records the electrical activity of the brain.

Overview of Electroencephalography (EEG)
Includes information how EEG recordings are interpreted and the safety of the test.

Routine EEG
How to prepare for and what to expect during a standard EEG test.

Ambulatory EEG
Cases where a routine EEG provides nonspecific findings may require a longer monitoring period.

Video EEG Monitoring
Allows for prolonged simultaneous recording of behavior and the EEG.

EEG With Special Electrodes
Electrodes can help detect an abnormality that may not appear on a routine EEG.
