Electroencephalography (EEG)

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a method for monitoring electrical

activity in the brain. It uses electrodes placed on or below the scalp to record activity. During the procedure, electrodes consisting of small metal discs with thin wires are placed onto the scalp or the EEG cap is worn . The electrodes detect tiny electrical charges that result from the activity of the brain cells.


EEG Equipment: EMOTIV

EMOTIV is a wireless headset that is often used in the process of conducting an EEG and gives the person undergoing EEG the ability to move around freely. The electrodes on these headsets can range from 5-20 and do not produce any sensation, as they only record brain activity. EMOTIV has made it easier and more convenient for EEG to be conducted, and takes less than 5 minutes to set up.
