Caption: Electroencephalography (EEG) testing for Alzheimer's disease, showing a woman undergoing an EEG & coloured scans of the electrical activity in her brain displayed on the computer at right. The local activity of the brain is recorded by electrodes placed across the scalp & displayed as colour-coded, cross-sectional images; 16 to 19 signal channels are typically employed. Comparisons are made between normal patients & those suffering from Alzheimer's disease, a progressive form of dementia. Results have indicated that one particular signal is especially disturbed in Alzheimer's patients.
