Brainwaves. Abstract computer artwork showing a standing male figure with a healthy human brain, and spiked EEG (electroencephalogram) brainwaves. The brainwaves may be depicting a thought pattern or some mental state. Brainwaves are electrical impulses produced by the activity of the brain when measured on an EEG machine. Such wave patterns alter when awake, asleep, or undergoing thought processes. The brain is seen sliced coronally, showing the two cerebral hemispheres (at top) with internal white matter; cerebellum beneath the folded cerebrum; the brainstem (white structure that joins the spinal cord). EEG testing can be used to study the health of the brain.
