Clinical Trial

Normal Quantitative EEG (qEEG) Dataset

Study Description

Normal Quantitative EEG (qEEG) Dataset

In this study, the investigators will collect EEG data in normal, healthy volunteers without a history of prior brain injury. This data will be analyzed by computer (quantitative, or qEEG) and stored in a normative database so that, in the future, the investigators can better understand and characterize the brain damage that can result from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and other types of brain injury.

Procedure - Electroencephalography

Electroencephalography (EEG) is a relatively inexpensive measurement of basic brain activity. Traditional EEG techniques rely on the clinician to visually examine the electrical current waveforms to identify abnormal signal patterns and slowing. Abnormalities on EEG have been reported following CO poisoning, though the literature is scarce. While current EEG technologies record EEG signals digitally, rather than writing directly to paper, computer-assisted analysis of the data (quantitative EEG, ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
