EEG

Electroencephalogram; Brain wave test; Epilepsy - EEG; Seizure - EEG

An electroencephalogram is a test to measure the electrical activity of the brain.

Brain

The major areas of the brain have one or more specific functions.

Brain wave monitor

The brainstem auditory evoked response test (BAER), is performed to help diagnose nervous-system abnormalities, hearing losses (especially in low-birth weight newborns), and to assess neurologic functions. The test focuses on changes and responses in brain waves. The brain waves are stimulated by a clicking sound to evaluate the central auditory pathways of the brainstem.
