Electroencephalography

WithJohn Lumsden

One thing to bear in mind is that neurophysiology is not a perfect science; a perfect version would record the activity of single neurons from the whole cranium and be able to handle the data. The addition of the aforementioned newer techniques and co-registration with neuroimaging techniques-such as positron emission tomography (PET), single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)—have significant potential to delineate distinguishing features of particular mental disorders that may be helpful in the future in prevention of these conditions or more effective treatment.
