The basic principle behind electroencephalography is that electrical impulses emitted by the brain, often called brain waves, vary according to the brain's age, activity, and condition. Research has established that certain brain conditions correspond to certain brain waves. Therefore, testing brain waves can aid the neurologist (a physician specially trained in the study of the brain) in making a diagnosis of a person's illness or injury.
