What to expect- an EEG testing

The source of activation in the brain comes from brain cells called neurons, and neurons communicate with one another through electrical signals.

We can measure these electrical signals using a technique called electroencephalography, or EEG.

So welcome to the EEG lab!

First, We will measure your head size. We need to make sure we use the right cap!


Then, we will put on the cap first…



We will then add some gel to each of the holes in the cap. The purpose of the gel is to make sure we get a really good recording of your active brain!



We will then connect the wires to the cap. The wires just help us record the electrical signals of your brain.


And now – Let’s see how your brain works while performing some tasks or games!
