Overview

The leading reference on electroencephalography since 1982, Niedermeyer's Electroencephalography is now in its thoroughly updated Sixth Edition. An international group of experts provides comprehensive coverage of the neurophysiologic and technical aspects of EEG, evoked potentials, and magnetoencephalography, as well as the clinical applications of these studies in neonates, infants, children, adults, and older adults. This edition's new lead editor, Donald Schomer, MD, has updated the technical information and added a major new chapter on artifacts. Other highlights include complete coverage of EEG in the intensive care unit and new chapters on integrating other recording devices with EEG; transcranial electrical and magnetic stimulation; EEG/TMS in evaluation of cognitive and mood disorders; and sleep in premature infants, children and adolescents, and the elderly. A companion website includes fully searchable text and image bank.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Matthew Hoerth, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a comprehensive reference on electroencephalography (EEG) and related fields. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose of the first edition of 1981 was to provide a "review of the state of affairs in EEG." At the time, clinical applications of EEG were rapidly growing and they continue to grow, evidenced by the need for this sixth edition.
Audience: This is intended as a reference for clinical electroencephalographers. Written by leaders in the field, it goes into appropriate depth on the subject.
Features: As noted in its subtitle, the book covers the basic principles of recording EEGs and how to clinically interpret them, and discusses directly related fields including magnetoencephalography, evoked potentials, and polysomnography. As intended, the book directly addresses issues related to EEG, and is not a surrogate for a comprehensive epilepsy reference.
Assessment: This continues to be the gold standard reference for EEG. The subsequent editions have continued in the tradition of the original publication, reviewing advances in this ever-growing field.
