They glue electrodes on the child's head.... attach wires and monitor the brain waves. Hopefully they will pick something up if there is anything to pick up. Keep in mind, they have to have an episode while they are being monitored for them to pick it up.

100% bang on.

Our daughter has Epilepsy and of all the tests she has had the EEG is the easiest. The hardest part is keeping them occupied while they are having it.

Good luck.

Hardest part for us is getting our 2 year old to fall asleep during the test. Not an easy task, no matter how sleep deprived.
