Electroencephalography is a way of examining how the brain of children and adults works over a certain stretch of time. This method is safe for the human body and is based on catching impulses that are produced by the brain’s nerve cells, also called neurons. EEG brain examination can be used in diagnosing a wide range of diseases of the central nervous system, however, it is mainly used to diagnose seizures.

- Video EEG during sleep is conducted as per indication as well as in cases when the patient is unable to comprehend or carry out the doctor’s commands due to impairment or age.
