Most neurologists, fellows, and residents are familiar with adult EEG, but have not developed a similar understanding of pediatric EEG. There are fewer resources covering pediatric electroencephalography and existing books are either too comprehensive or lack the main details that differentiate the EEG in childhood. This accessible text includes the most recent classification and nomenclature published by the International League Against Epilepsy. It provides a practical and well illustrated text of value to residents, fellows, and neurologists in need of an update on pediatric EEG.
