• • [ ) opens this clinical reference with a review of normal electroencephalogram electroencephalogram /elec·tro·en·ceph·a·lo·gram/ (EEG) (-en-sef´ah-lo-gram?) a recording of the potentials on the skull generated by currents emanating spontaneously from nerve cells in the brain, with fluctuations in potential seen as (EEG) results for measuring the brain's electrical function. The following four chapters interpret example EEG patterns of diffuse slowing, focal abnormalities, epileptiform abnormalities, seizures, periodic epileptiform discharges, and coma. The last two chapters analyze sample polysomnograms recorded during sleep and discuss neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring Intraoperative Neurophysiology Monitoring (IONM) is the use of electrophysiological methods (such as EEG, EMG, and evoked potentials) to monitor the functional integrity of neural structures (brain, nerves, spinal cord) during surgery. .
