Abstract

Neurometrics is a methodology born of the necessity to obtain objective parameters for electroencephalogram (EEG) and evoked potentials in order to perform automatic analysis of brain function. Based on the quantitative analysis of electrophysiological signals, its goal is to obtain probabilistic criteria regarding the maturation and functional integrity of the nervous system. This chapter focuses on the maturation of the EEG.
