The first known neurophysiologic recordings of animals eletcroencefalograma performed by Richard Caton in The advent of recording the electrical activity of human beings took another half century to occur.

The EEG is an electrophysiological technique for the recording of electrical activity arising from the human brain. Given its exquisite temporal sensitivity, the main utility of EEG is in the evaluation of dynamic cerebral functioning. EEG is particularly useful for evaluating patients with suspected seizures, epilepsy, and unusual spells.

With certain exceptions, practically all patients with epilepsy will demonstrate characteristic EEG alterations during an epileptic seizure ictal, or during-seizure, recordings. EEG electroenceefalograma also been adopted for several other clinical indications.

For example, EEG may be used to monitor the depth of anesthesia during surgical procedures; given its great sensitivity in showing electroenefalograma changes in neural functioning even as they first occur, it has proven quite helpful in this setting in electroenccefalograma for potential complications such as ischemia or infarction.

EEG waveforms may also be averaged, giving rise to evoked potentials EPs and event-related potentials ERPspotentials that represent neural activity of interest that is temporally related to a specific stimulus.

EPs and ERPs are used in clinical practice and research for analysis of visual, auditory, somatosensory, and higher cognitive functioning. Care has been taken to confirm the accuracy of the information presented and to describe generally accepted practices.
