EEG (Electroencefalograma)

EEG (Electroencefalograma)

Los médicos utilizan los electroencefalogramas para saber qué está ocurriendo en el cerebro. Un aparato especial mide las ondas del cerebro para crear un encefalograma. Sin importar qué estés haciendo (incluso cuando duermes), el cerebro emite ondas eléctricas. Un electroencefalógrafo es un aparato que mide estas ondas eléctricas y muestra en qué zona se encuentran y cuán grandes son. Impresionante, ¿no es cierto?

Los electroencefalogramas no duelen y gracias a ellos los médicos son capaces de determinar de qué manera tratar a estos niños.
