Also known as:
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of your brain. Special sensors (electrodes
) are attached to your head and hooked by wires to a computer. The computer records your brain's electrical activity on the screen or on paper as wavy lines. Certain conditions, such as seizures
, can be seen by the changes in the normal pattern of the brain's electrical activity.
