We studied the effect of aging on EEG spectra recorded from T5-O1 (T6-O2) derivation. The aging series composed of 52 normal individuals aged 20 to 91 years. Seventy-nine per cent of visual and 81% of quantitative EEGs were considered normal. The absolute amplitude of delta and theta bands and absolute power of delta band were lower for the oldest group (aged 60 and over) than for the youngest group (aged 20-39 years). Age was inversely related to the amount of delta and theta indicating that… CONTINUE READING
