EEG in Clinical Practice is a comprehensive, easy-to-read, and well-illustrated book on scalp EEG. Through the text in its 21 chapters, 553 figures, and 94 tables describes practically every aspect of the scalp EEG including pathophysiology, technical challenges, and its value and limitations in the diagnosis of epilepsy and related disorders. Some of the recent advances such as EEG monitoring in intensive care units, quantitative EEG, and high frequency oscillations are also covered. Adhering to the systematic approach to reading and interpretation of the EEG, depicted in the final chapter, may help to minimize misreading of EEG and its consequences, which is highly prevalent especially in the developing countries. Though it is targeted at neurology trainees, young practicing neurologists, and neurotechnologists, it also serves as a reference guide for all the neurologists and electrophysiologists.
This comprehensive textbook on the practice of electroencephalogram (EEG) is edited by three distinguished Indian neurologists and clinical neurophysiologists: Professor Kurupath Radhakrishnan, Professor Jagarlapudi M K Murthy, and Professor Chaturbhuj Rathore. Available textbooks on EEG tend to concentrate on technical details rather than on practical tips and instructive illustrations. The authors have addressed this deficiency by producing a comprehensive and well‑illustrated book on scalp‑recorded standard EEGs. They have succeeded in producing a practical guide to the state‑of‑the‑art concepts, from the historical introduction to the most recent advances in the field. The sophistication in each chapter is a testament to the state‑of‑the‑art of clinical neurophysiology in India today, and the text is straightforward, and aptly supported by excellent illustrations of EEG tracings and useful tables and figures – Jerome Engel, Jr
