n.
the technique for recording the electrical activity from different parts of the brain and converting it into a tracing called an electroencephalogram (EEG). The machine that records this activity is known as an encephalograph. The pattern of the EEG reflects the state of the patient's brain and his level of consciousness in a characteristic manner. Electroencephalography is mostly used in the diagnosis and management of epilepsy and sleep disorders.
