EEG (electroencephalogram)

A special test that shows brain activity as cells send messages (electrical signals) to each other. The EEG test involves the attachment of electrodes (flat metal discs) to either side of the scalp which record brain waves sending them to the EEG machine where can be shown on a monitor. Find out more about this test at the Brain and Spine Foundation.
