A Practical Handbook

This book provides a concise overview of the possible clinical
applications of standard EEG in clinical psychiatry. After a short
history, the book describes the physiologic basis of the EEG
signal, then reviews the principles of EEG in terms of technical
backgrounds and requirements, EEG recording and signal analysis,
with plentiful illustrations of the most frequent biological or
technical artefacts. Normal EEG patterns and waveforms for easy
reference are clearly presented, before the detailed description of
abnormal patterns.

With the basic information in hand, the reader progresses to an
account of the role of EEG in the diagnostic work up in psychiatry,
covering nonconvulsive status epilepticus, frontal lobe seizures
and non-epileptic seizures. The clinical application of EEG in both
childhood and adult disorders follows, including many case
vignettes. The effects of psychotropic drugs on EEG are
highlighted.


The book closes with a discussion of currently available
certification venues for Clinical Neurophysiology along with
limitations of each venue. It calls for the development of training
guidelines and certification processes specific to Psychiatric
Electrophysiology.


The material is clearly presented throughout, with plenty of
figures, tables with summaries of relevant findings, flow diagrams
for diagnostic work-up, boxes with learning points, and short lists
of key references.


We fully expect the book will become the standard teaching
source for psychiatry residents and fellows, as well as a useful
resource for practising psychiatrists and clinical
psychologists.


Praise for the book:


"This distinguished group of editors has put together chapters
that represent an excellent practical handbook on
electroencephalography in clinical psychiatry, now a very important
topic. I highly recommend it not only to psychiatrists, but also to
anyone interested in neuroscience."
