The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Digital EEG: An Interactive Training Guide

Arch Neurol. 2008;65(2):280-281. doi:10.1001/archneurol.2007.44.
Text Size: A A A
Published online


In several ways, this atlas on clinical electroencephalography (EEG) stands in marked contrast to several other standard textbooks on clinical neurophysiology. Whereas these other texts often include detailed discussions on cortical neurophysiology, the genesis of EEG patterns, and principles of electronics and instrumentation and broadly include other topics of clinical neurophysiology, such as evoked potentials, this atlas maintains a fairly strict “nuts-and-bolts” focus on clinical EEG analysis in the age of paperless recordings. The editors themselves admit that for a more comprehensive review of basic science or clinical topics in clinical neurophysiology, a textbook such as that edited by Niedermeyer and Lopes da Silva1should be consulted. On the other hand, this atlas, by a unique combination of textbook material and “hands-on” DVD, is clearly intended primarily as a teaching guide for physicians, especially neurology residents. Insofar as clinical EEG interpretation requires, more than anything else, pattern recognition, the editors have succeeded in providing the reader with a means of acquiring that vital skill.
