When dealing with electroencephalograms (EEGs) recorded under resting conditions, periods of low-voltage activity might indicate drowsiness, but mental activation as well. Thus, low-voltage EEG retrieves a notorious source of confusion. The simultaneous occurrence of drowsiness related slow horizontal eye movements (SEM) allow to assign low-voltage EEG… CONTINUE READING
