The electroencephalogram or EEG tests brain activity to diagnose ailments like epilepsy and other seizure disorders, which typically disrupt sleep patterns. The EEG involves attaching electrodes to the scalp to measure and record the function and electrical activity of the cerebral cortex (brain).
The electrodes are strategically placed over specific lobes of the brain, to capture whether the brain is exhibiting normal electrical activity. The EEG is usually conducted first while the patient is awake, and then while they are sleeping. Once the results have been captured, our team will analyse the data to formulate a sound report for the patient.
