Product description

Organized to serve as a resource for those just beginning to learn EEG as well as those who are already experienced, this title contains concise presentations of the fundamentals of EEG technology and interpretation as well as an up-to-date review of the latest digital EEG technology and EEG clinical correlations. Unlike other EEG textbooks, the second half of this book is uniquely organized according to EEG findings rather than individual disorders. This is the best practical approach to learning interpretation because it mirrors the actual practice of EEG, the EEGer is confronted by EEG patterns, not diagnoses. All other textbooks organize findings according to clinical disorder. The book contains sufficient information to serve as a laboratory manual. The appendices contain the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society guidelines for EEG and the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology glossary. Each chapter begins with a summary of major concepts. An overview of EEG can be quickly obtained by those beginning the study of EEG by simply reading the introductory summaries of all chapters before reading the contents of the chapters.
