Electroecephalography (EEG) is an electrophysiological monitoring method to record electrical activity of the brain as the electrical activity of heart is recorded by ECG. 
It is used to diagnose, classify and treat clinical and subclinical seizures. It also helps in assessing the brain activity in a comatose patient in whom the decision is to be made regarding brain death or withdrawal from the ventilator. Additionally it also assists in assessing patients with metabolic disorders like hypog-lycemia and various infe-ctions of brain.

It is used in assessing peripheral neuropathy conduction study (NCS) is an electro-diagnostic technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles and nerves like the electrical activity of the heart is recorded by ECG. 

Instructions for the patients: 

  • The patient should wear loose clothing so that the part of the body to be tested can easily be exposed. 
  • The patient should tell if there is any metallic object like bullets ,mental plates or nails  in the body to avoid injury during the test
