INTRODUCTION: Like other cells, nerve cells also show changes of electrical potential during activity which can be detected, amplified and recorded in the form of waves with an instrument called electroencephalograph. The EEG waves are due to current flow in the fluctuating dipoles formed on the dendrites of the cortical cells and cell bodies.
