With the announcement by William Lennox at the 1935 London International Neurology Congress of the use of electroencephalography in the study of epilepsy, it became evident that a new and powerful technique for the investigation of seizures had been discovered. William Grey Walter, a young researcher finishing his post-graduate studies at Cambridge, was selected to construct and study the EEG in clinical neurology at the Maudsley Hospital, London. His hugely productive pioneering career in the… Expand

TLDR
An EEG based neuro-cognitive study on response of brain to different color stimuli and suggests a lower degree of inter and intra lobe correlation while watching the VIBGYOR colors compared to baseline Grey, hinting towards a post processing of visual information. Expand
The Berlin Brain-Computer Interface: Progress Beyond Communication and Control
TLDR
The reasons why, in some of the prospective application domains, considerable effort is still required to make the systems ready to deal with the full complexity of the real world are discussed. Expand
The science of neural interface systems.
TLDR
The potential for neural interface research to enhance basic scientific understanding of brain function by offering unique insights in neural coding and representation, plasticity, brain-behavior relations, and the neurobiology of disease is addressed. Expand
Neuropsychologic correlates of a normal EEG variant: The mu rhythm.
Although the mu rhythm is traditionally defined as a normal EEG variant, recent evidence suggests that mu may have functional significance in a variety of disorders such as autism, Parkinson'sExpand
Epilepsy, digital technology and the black-boxed self
TLDR
Tracking this connection across the rise of so-called ‘Surveillance Medicine’ and new digital health technologies reveals suggestive parallels between the stigmatized PWE and the data-driven subject of today’s digital environment. Expand

ELECTRO-ENCEPHALOGRAPHY IN CASES OF SUB-CORTICAL TUMOUR
TLDR
Electro-encephalography to organic brain lesions has mainly been limited to the study of cases with involvement of the convexity of the hemispheres, and many observers have remarked that in cases of new growth, the waveform of the slow potential changes is particularly irregular and complex, whereas in Cases of idiophathic epilepsy the discharge tends to be more stereotyped and rhythmic.

The electroencephalogram in epilepsy.
TLDR
The author made a study of his own records of 430 patients with a diagnosis of epilepsy, and found that the highest incidence was in patients in whom seizures had begun when they were between 10 and 15 years of age and in those with a duration of seizures from 5 to 10 years. Expand

TLDR
There is a general increase in component voltage in successively faster frequencies from birth to the 29th year of life and beyond these frequencies there were no systematic increases in voltage with age. Expand

TLDR
The transformations of electrodiagnosis from diagnoscopy to the EEG are indicative of a cultural shift in which electricity changed its role from being the power source for experimental apparatuses to becoming a medium of psychic processes. Expand
