  Electroencephalography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
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.
In 1935 Gibbs, Davis and Lennox describe interictal spike waves and the 3 cycles/s pattern of clinical absence seizures, beginning the field of clinical electroencephalography.
In 1936 Gibbs and Jasper report the interictal spike as the focal signature of epilepsy.

 Electroencephalography: Encyclopedia of Surgery
Electroencephalography, or EEG, is a neurological test that involves attaching electrodes to the head of a person to measure and record electrical activity in the brain over time.
Throughout the procedure, the electroencephalography unit makes a continuous graphic record of the person's brain activity, or brain waves, on a long strip of recording paper or computer screen.
Electroencephalography is often administered by specially trained technicians who are supervised by a neurologist or other physician with specialized training in administering and interpreting the test.

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a neurological diagnostic procedure that records the changes in electrical potentials (brain waves) in various parts of the brain.
The EEG is an important aid in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy and other seizure disorders, as well as in the diagnosis of brain damage related to trauma and diseases such as strokes, tumors, encephalitis, and drug and alcohol intoxication.

Electroencephalography (EEG) measures the waves of electrical activity produced by the brain by recording electrical output on the surface of the scalp.
The electrical activity of the brain (brain waves) is detected by the electrodes and sent on to the electroencephalography machine, which records the activity in a computer and then on a paper printout.

Gibbs and H. Davis [4] showed association of 3/sec spike-wave complexes in EEG with epileptic petit mal absences, and A. Loomis et al [5] methodically studied human sleep EEG patterns and the stages of sleep.
First attempts were made by Hans Berger in 1932 [8]; he was assisted by the physicist Dietsch, who applied Fourier analysis to short EEG sections.
Hopefully, this may contribute to the renaissance of electroencephalography in research and clinical applications.

In 1962 the Board’s base was widened to include representatives from the American Neurological Association, the American Academy of Neurology, and the American Psychiatric Association and it was incorporated as a wholly-independent body, The American Board of Clinical Electroencephalography, Inc., familiarly known as ABQEEG.
From this emerged The American Board of Registration of EEG Technologists (ABRET), the nationally-accepted accreditation facility for EEG technologists.
