Electroencephalography in infancy

  • Colette Dreyfus-Brisac

Abstract

The study of the electrical activity of the brain in newborn animals and children is, at present, the object of much investigation and has provoked considerable interest. Such research can be done from a purely clinical point of view, attempting to find electro-clinical correlations; or from a physiological point of view, the ontogenesis of spontaneous or provoked potentials in newborn animals suggesting new ideas on the mechanism of the more or less mature nervous system.
