Electroencephalography (EEG) has been an important diagnostic tool for over eight decades and continues to have a major role in epilepsy and neuro-monitoring. This chapter introduces the physiologic basis and indication for EEG studies. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the principles and significance of surface EEG findings for the neurologist in clinical practice. The chapter ends with an overview of advanced techniques used in patients evaluated for epilepsy surgery, including invasive monitoring, EEG source localization (ESL) and high frequency oscillations (HFO).
