This is a recording of the electrical activity of the brain. It is also known as an EEG.
There is constant electrical activity going on in the brain. An electroencephalogram, or EEG, is a recording of this electrical activity.
During an EEG, electrical activity is measured by a machine.
An EEG may be done in a doctor's office, EEG lab or hospital. Your healthcare provider may want an EEG done while you are awake and asleep. If you need to sleep during the test, you may be told to limit your sleep the night before.
What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?
After your EEG, you should understand home care instructions (including medications and side effects), follow-up plans and symptoms to report to your healthcare provider.
