Generally, the interpretation of pediatric EEGs is more difficult than that of adult records because the former have greater interindividual and age-dependent variability.

Considerable experience is needed before a pediatric neurologist or electroencephalographer becomes competent in interpreting pediatric EEGs.
This book is organized in three parts. Part 1 consists of normal and abnormal EEG tracings in childhood, part 2 describes the role of the EEG in some common pediatric neurologic problems, and part 3 describes the technical aspects of recording technique. Part 1 comprises the main portion of the book and includes 289 figures. The illustrations are excellent. They include large EEG tracings rather than the smaller scaled EEG figures commonly used, which so often distort the visual impression of an EEG pattern. These larger tracings help the beginner to recognize patterns as
