A new Classification approach to epilepticseizures and to the epilepsies became official in Several aspects in terms of terminology have been included in this book and most of the chapters have been rewritten. This volume focuses on epilepsies in their diversity. It is richly illustrated, and each EEG plate is analyzed in order to highlight the most significant elements to be used both for the diagnosis and interpretation.

For higher-quality images with the text:. Designed to facilitate learning at all levels of EEG education, this atlas is useful for learners new to the EEG field, for those who want to refresh their knowledge, and for those aiming to maintain certification in the subspecialties of clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy.
Created for EEG technologists, allied health professionals including nurses and physician assistants, medical students, neurology residents, and epilepsy fellows, the atlas has collected over 90 real-world examples of key EEG findings. The EEG examples are accompanied by focused, highly practical, and readable complementary explanations throughout the text. The atlas includes discussions of important topics such as an orderly and organized approach to reading the EEG, technical background of EEG recording, focal and generalized EEG abnormalities and their meaning for clinical care, ictal EEG patterns representative of different seizure types, and examples of common artifacts imitating epileptiform abnormalities.
Jeffrey W. ISBN: Lauren C. Frey, M. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that uses EEG to follow the brain's electrical activity in real time. During training sessions, patients work towards increasing healthy brain rhythms while suppressing unhealthy rhythms. Increasing healthier brain rhythms can improve a person's mental and physical health and their well-being. Frey published work includes analyses of the effect of neurofeedback training on seizure control and quality of life in patients with epilepsy.
Erik K. Louis, M. He was educated at St. Previously, he co-directed the Marshfield Clinic and University of Iowa epilepsy programs for ten years. His laboratory has pioneered new quantitative polysomnographic analysis methods and established diagnostic standards for RBD, and is currently analyzing these measures as a biomarker for synucleinopathy neurodegeneration.
Other current research projects include analyzing sleep and waking physiologic risk profiles for sudden unexpected death in epilepsy SUDEP , co-morbid sleep apnea in epilepsy, and using EEG and ERP signal analyses to characterize cognitive and cerebral functioning following sleep deprivation.
