Atlas of Ambulatory EEG covers the areas of clinical neurophysiology, an atlas that comprehensively depicts normal, abnormal, and artifactual findings from actual ambulatory EEG recordings in a convenient and easily accessible format. As the use of ambulatory EEG has increased in recent years, the need for a concise atlas of ambulatory EEG has grown significantly, since ambulatory EEG tracings are subject to their own unique issues and artifacts, often not discussed in standard EEG atlases. This book begins with several chapters that introduce the history, technology, and clinical utility of ambulatory EEG. The bulk of the atlas consists of a page-by-page display of high-quality ambulatory EEG excerpts that are easy to review and come with short annotations describing the relevant findings. Atlas of Ambulatory EEG is a critical resource for anyone involved in the interpretation of ambulatory EEG studies.

Key Features

  • A handy reference describing EEG patterns in normal and abnormal subjects based upon continuous monitoring techniques from widely used ambulatory EEG equipment.
  • A section of EEG patterns without accompanying explanation will test the reader's ability to interpret the waveforms and answers will be given in a separate section.
  • Internationally renowned contributors in the field.
  • Wide audience including researchers in neurophysiology and neuroscience, as well as neurologists.


Researchers in neurophysiology, neuroscience; neurologists.
