Overview

The standard-setting clinical electroencephalography textbook has been rewritten for the next decade of EEG technicians and resident and practicing neurologists. This Third Edition reflects the transition of the field to an all-digital environment, with fundamental changes in data recording, analysis, and interpretation.

Drs. Ebersole and Pedley are outstanding educators with extensive experience in editing two of the leading journals—Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsia, respectively. In this volume, Ebersole and Pedley cover the full range of applications of EEG and evoked potentials in contemporary clinical practice. The book explains the most advanced instrumentation and techniques and their use in evaluating various disorders. More than 600 illustrations depict both normal and abnormal findings.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a superb multicontributor textbook on the current practice of electroencephalography (EEG).
Purpose: This book will be of value for anyone who interprets an EEG — everyone from the novice neurology resident to the experienced electroencephalographer will find material of value in this well-written book.
Audience: This book will be of value on anyone who interprets an EEG—everyone from the novice neurology resident to the experienced electroencephalographer will find material of value in the well-written text.
Features: This is a virtual guide to all of EEG. It is comprehensive and covers engineering, artifacts, activation, intraoperative monitoring, ambulatory EEG, intracranial EEG, video EEG, as well as the usefulness of EEG in epilepsy and encephalopathies. Each of the 31 chapters is comprehensive, well written, and illustrated with well-reproduced EEG tracings. Only a few of the tracings in this book fall below the general high standards of reproduction attained by the majority of tracings.
Assessment: This is the third edition of a classic EEG book. It simply gets better and more useful with time. This is a very good book that anyone who pursues EEG interpretation will want to own.
