Quantitative EEG Analysis Methods and Clinical Applications by Shanbao Tong, Nitish V. Thankor

By Shanbao Tong, Nitish V. Thankor

Quantitative EEG (electroencephalography) is a state-of-the-art procedure used for topographic exhibit and research of mind electrophysiological information. using quantitative EEG for diagnosing a number of psychiatric issues is commencing to achieve large popularity between pros and researchers operating during this quarter. This authoritative quantity presents an summary of easy and complex thoughts utilized in quantitative EEG (qEEG) research. The booklet presents a variety of mathematical instruments utilized in qEEG, from unmarried channel discriptors to the interactions between multi-channel EEG research. in addition, readers locate insurance of the most recent and preferred software within the box, together with psychological and neurological illness detection/monitoring, physiological and cognitive phenomena examine, and fMRI.

The electrode holders themselves contain the electrode pellets. The HydroCel net can be used with sponge inserts soaked in potassium chloride saline for recordings of up to 2 hours or without sponge inserts but with electrolyte applied directly into the electrode wells for recordings of longer than 2 hours. The GSN is then applied to the head much like a wig and the individual electrode holders are straightened out to enable good placement and electrode contact. The entire procedure can be performed in about 10 minutes for 128-channel nets, which makes this an attractive design for fast EEG acquisition preparation.

The Laplacian oscillations are largest at electrode sites 5 and 6 near the vertex. The waveforms differ at these electrodes, with a peak occurring at the first time slice in electrode 6 with no corresponding peak at electrode 5. The electrode sites over occipital and frontal areas show the strongest alpha signal in the potential plots, but much smaller amplitude Laplacian signals. Similar differences between potential and Laplacian waveforms were observed in other scalp locations (not shown), again indicating the simultaneous presence of both small and large dipole layers.

1 EEG Electrode Types Electrodes suitable for EEG recordings can be made from a variety of materials such as tin, stainless steel, gold-plated silver, pure silver, pure gold, and Ag/AgCl. All of these electrode types are actively being used for a variety of clinical and research EEG recording purposes. Because any two or more metals immersed into an electrolyte will result in a dc offset potential being generated and because these dc offsets depend largely on the electrochemical properties of the metals used, one important rule is to never mix recording electrodes made from different materials.
