Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
