brain electrical activity mapping

A non-invasive diagnostic technique used to detect certain kinds of epilepsy, head injuries, dyslexia, brain tumours, dementia and other brain diseases. This procedure utilises a computer to convert data from brain electrical potentials into coloured topographical maps of the brain, which are then automatically compared with those of an appropriate control group to indicate the degree of deviation from the norm.
