What is an electroencephalogram or EEG?

An electroencephalogram, or EEG for short, is a test used by your baby's doctor to see whether your baby is suffering from seizures. Seizures are commonly seen in babies with Cerebral Palsy. During an EEG, special patches called electrodes are placed on your baby's scalp to record the natural electrical currents inside your baby's brain. This recording can help the doctor see telltale patterns in the brain's electrical activity that suggest a seizure disorder.
