Theta power in the EEG of alcoholics.
TLDR
Increased tonic theta power in the EEG may reflect a deficiency in the information-processing capacity of the central nervous system in alcoholics and be an electrophysiological index of the imbalance in the excitation-inhibition homeostasis in the cortex.
Theta power in the EEG of alcoholics.
Background: In this study, the magnitude and spatial distribution of theta power in the resting EEG were examined to explore the changes in the neurophysiological status of the alcoholic brain. Some

EEG Absolute Power During Extended Cocaine Abstinence
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic cocaine use is associated with EEG changes that may reflect persisting brain electrophysiological abnormalities during cocaine abstinence, and that these changes are not totally consistent with some previous studies.
Impact of alcoholism on sleep architecture and EEG power spectra in men and women.
TLDR
Sleep EEG measures would seem to provide a functional correlate of the changes in brain structure seen in frontal cortex of long-term alcoholics, suggesting that alcoholism affects sleep even after long periods of abstinence in both men and women.
EEG spectral changes in treatment-naive, actively drinking alcoholics.
TLDR
Increased EEG power across the theta to high beta bands distinguishes TxNAs without comorbid diagnoses from controls, and this model predicts that in very long-term alcoholics, EEG power would be equal to or lower than that of age- and sex-comparable controls.

TLDR
The results indicate that EEG measures prior to alcohol administration do not effectively discriminate between individuals at high and low risk for alcoholism.

TLDR
These data support other evidence of a less intense reaction to ethanol in FHPs as measured by subjective response, body sway, and hormone levels and suggest that certain normal alpha wave variants may be more common in sons of alcoholics.

TLDR
Results suggest that deficits in resting EEG alpha are associated with risk for alcoholism, although their etiological significance is unclear.
Aging and spectral analysis of EEG in normal subjects: a link to memory and CSF AChE
TLDR
A link between the cholinergic system, EEG slowing and memory problems in old age is suggested because the amount of slow activity in quantitative EEG does not increase with age in the context of good health status.
Quantitative EEG changes in cocaine withdrawal: evidence for long-term CNS effects.
TLDR
Chronic use of cocaine may cause longer lasting neuroadaptive changes, particularly in those who have used cocaine intravenously, as indicated by quantitative EEG changes during cocaine withdrawal.
Genetic disposition to alcoholism. An EEG study in alcoholics and their relatives
TLDR
An argument supporting the notion that in females a poorly synchronized EEG pattern reflects a certain disposition to alcoholism is discussed in light of drinking motivation in males and females.
