Whether you're new to electroencephalography or are looking to sharpen your EEG skills, this new 4th edition will be your go-to reference for EEG know-how. Editor John Ebersole, MD and his two new associate editors, with a team of nationally recognized authors, wrote this comprehensive volume, perfect for students, physicians-in-training, researchers, and practicing electroencephalographers who seek a substantial, yet practical compendium of the dynamic field of electroencephalography. In addition to cogent text, enjoy illustrations, diagrams, and charts that relate EEG findings to clinical conditions. Established areas of clinical EEG are updated, newly evolving areas are introduced, and neurophysiological bases are explained to encourage understanding and not simply pattern recognition. The best practitioners know that EEG is never stagnant; stay up-to-date and ready to use EEG to its fullest potential.
