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.

Our host, David Clifford, poses with EEG electrodes attached to his head.

Epilepsy Monitoring Units

A stay at an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit can sound daunting. That’s why we wrote The Inpatient’s Definitive Guide to Epilepsy Monitoring Units.

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.
