Nowadays the electroencephalograph is used instead, a machine which amplifies the slightest variations in the brain's electrical potential.
As well as the electroencephalograph, other means may be used to examine the sleeping state such as cameras to observe the sleeper, wire-recorders to monitor the dreams and equipment for measuring the body temperature.
Sleep is therefore a periodical biological phenomenon, characterised by the loss of consciousness and, thanks to the electroencephalograph it has been possible to demonstrate that one night's sleep consists of the periodic succession of cycles lasting over one hour each, that repeat four or five times during the night.

 Practical Paper: Possibility of Electromagnetic Interference with Electronic Medical Equipment
Strong magnetic flux density, exceeding 200µT, was observed at the welds of deck plates, at the piping holes of metal deck plates, and at the welds of metallic ornaments hanging from the deck plates.
The electroencephalograph was on a wagon at a height of 1,000 mm with the same person sitting on the plastic bench during testing.
For the electroencephalograph, the pen driver coils, which tend to be easily interfered with by magnetism, were in a position 1,000 mm above the floor, a sufficient distance to fully protect it from EMI from the weak magnetic flux density found 100 mm from the weld.

 How it works with EEG
Brainwave I is a computer based electronic system that uses the brain’s output through the electroencephalograph to control the training input from the optical-acoustical stimulation glasses and earphones.
Once an individual has "learned" the appropriate frequencies he or she can use them at will whenever a particular function is needed.
To learn to use the brain frequencies properly requires the use of Brainwave I; a combination of an electroencephalograph (equipment that reads brainwave output) and an optical-acoustical trainer (equipment that controls brainwave input).

 Earliest signs of Alzheimer's can be screened for with an electroencephalograph   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In research settings, scientists are using sophisticated tools like MRI and PET to distinguish characteristics of brain function and anatomy that indicate future problems, providing a sort of screening test for the brain.
Now a new study by a research group at NYU School of Medicine demonstrates that the earliest manifestations of Alzheimer's, when the first signs of memory loss appear, can be screened with a relatively inexpensive, painless, and easy-to-use tool called an EEG (electroencephalograph).
In the study, published in the upcoming on-line issue of the journal Neurobiology of Aging, the researchers demonstrate that a computer analysis of the EEG, which measures the brain's electrical activity, accurately predicted healthy people in their 60s and 70s who would develop dementia over the next 7 to 10 years.

These ingrained habitual bracing patterns probably developed over time in response to the intense pain of her earlier headaches but were now themselves causing chronic inflammation of the tissues which led to more severe headaches and other painful symptoms as well.
Using feedback from the electromyograph, electroencephalograph, and coaching from her biofeedback therapist, Crystal began to learn to consciously control and release the structural bracing and the high levels of mental arousal (common with chronic pain), that were responsible for her painful symptoms.
The sensors were attached to an electroencephalograph (EEG) that "read" and interpreted the electrical activity of her brain and then fed this information into a fast computer.

 piracetam article by James South
(1) Between 1968 and 1972, however, there was an explosion of Piracetam research which uncovered its ability to facilitate learning, prevent amnesia induced by hypoxia and electroshock, and accelerate electroencephalograph return to normal in hypoxic animals.
Piracetam reduced the severity and occurrence of major symptoms of "post-concussional syndrome," such as headache, vertigo, fatigue and decreased alertness (18), while it also improved the state of consciousness in deeply comatose hospitalized patients following head injuries.
The electroencephalograph records the electrical activity of large groups of corticol neurons, and also reflects cerebral oxygen/glucose metabolism and blood flow.

Graham J. Patrick, RN, Ph.D. This study tested a 15-session electroencephalograph (EEG) driven photic stimulation neural training procedure designed to enhance the regulation of brain wave activity and thus improve cognitive functioning in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) children.
The initial results of biofeedback based on physiologic indicators of arousal such as skin sweat or muscle tension have not been encouraging according to Barkley (1992).
This research is based on studies in the late 1960's indicating that subjects with severe epilepsy could learn to reduce their symptoms by over 50% through the use of EEG biofeedback that focused on 14 hertz brain wave activity (Lubar et al., 1981; Sterman and Friar, 1972).
