The EEG (or Electroencephalography) has become the quintessential tool for Neurologists (or Epileptologists) to determine what is going on in our heads.
It measures the tiny electrical changes in our brain. Neurologists arrange the data in a montage so it can be inspected. A trained Neurologist can use the EEG data to determine the origination of our seizure and how it moves throughout our brain. Both are vitally important to determine the next steps in our medical treatment.

Have you visited an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit? Most Epilepsy Centers have one. The National Association of Epilepsy Centers has a great tool to find the nearest Epilepsy Center to you.
Did your medical team find the origin of your seizures? Where was it?
