The fundamental neural mechanisms of electroencephalography

Neil Schaul
Electroencephalography and clinical neurophysiology

We are at an interesting time in the evolution of the EEG. Studies are opening the door to understanding the intrinsic neuronal properties and network operations responsible for the generation of EEG oscillations. I will review some of our knowledge regarding the physiology of the normal and abnormal EEG. Both epileptic and non-epileptic activity will be discussed. Less is known about the latter, because of difficulties in developing appropriate models. The major dichotomy for both types of EEG phenomenon will be focal and generalized or widespread. Certain distinctive abnormal EEG patterns including burst suppression, periodic phenomena and intermittent rhythmic delta will also be addressed.
