Electroencephalography (EEG)

Question:

What did your EEG results reveal? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: Conniec, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: June 19

My EEG results revealed abnormality in the awake, drowsy and asleep states due to the presence of rare left anterior temporal sharp wave with maxima f7 and rare wide field anterior sharp wave, and frequent polymorphic theta range slowing in the left temporal region suggestive of a moderate focal cerebral dysfunction in this region.

Comment from: sssscc, 45-54 (Patient) Published: October 27

My EEG results revealed diffuse slowing of the background electrical activity of my brain. I am worried.
