An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures brain activity. Electrodes (sensors) are placed on your head with wires that connect to a computer. The electrodes measure and record your brain function by displaying wavy lines on a computer screen.
An EEG may be used to diagnose or look for problems with:
- Abnormal movements
- Memory Loss
- Sleep disorders
