Electroencephalograms

Electroencephalograms (EEGs) measure the electrical conduction within the brain. At the Charles L. Tice Heart Center at Newton Medical Center, neurologists use EEGs to diagnose and plan a course of treatment for disorders associated with the brain. Electrodes are placed at various locations on the scalp and the electrical activity of the brain is recorded. Potential diagnostic uses for EEGs include diagnosis of seizure disorders, such as epilepsy; diagnosis of changes in consciousness; dementia; coma; or sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy. EEGs are also helpful to determine if a patient has a physical brain disorder or mental illness, and to determine a patient’s chances of recovering from loss of consciousness.

When other specialized diagnostics or treatments are necessary, Atlantic Neuroscience Institute at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center can seamlessly provide our patients with neurological services.
