Description of the study
 EEG - is a non-invasive method of examining changes in brain potentials using an apparatus called an electroencephalograph. On the scalp electrodes connected to a bioelectrical amplifier amplifier (head). The bioelectrical signal obtained is recorded in the form of various brain waves, which are analysed. The purpose of the examination is to record and interpret the The purpose of the test is to record and interpret the bioelectrical activity of the brain.

 The study uses so-called recording activation methods, i.e. photostimulation, hyperventilation and the stop response. Methods activation methods are used to obtain additional diagnostic information.
Photostimulation (FS) consists of exposure from Photostimulation (FS) is based on the exposure of a variable rhythmic stroboscopic stimulus from a distance of about 20-30 cm from the eyes of the subject. stroboscopic stimulus. Hyperventilation (Hv) consists in carrying out The hyperventilation (Hv) consists in deep breathing for 3 minutes, while the stopping response (O-Z) is a few seconds of opening and then closing the eyes.

 The examination helps to differentiate between functional and organic disorders of the of the brain. In many diseases of the brain, the examination allows the location of the The examination is particularly important in the case of patients with a large number of brain diseases. This examination is of particular importance in patients with epileptic seizures, in the case of encephalitis, after cranial The examination is a method used to determine the location of the disease in a specific area of the brain. This examination is a method to assist in the evaluation of patients with brain tumours and vascular brain vascular brain damage (after stroke). The head EEG examination allows examination of various ailments of neurological or psychical origin.

The examination shall normally be carried out in the supine position (if so (if so indicated, the examination shall be carried out in the sitting position). During the examination The patient's eyes are closed and he/she follows the instructions of the the examination. The examined person lies still, does not move or talk during the talking during the examination, as such behaviour may generate grafts of extracerebral origin.
The examination is painless and non-invasive.

 In Lublin EEG examinations are carried out using specialist EEG DigiTrack equipment produced by a Polish company ELMIKO. The device DigiTrack has all required technical certificates.
