Doctors use electroencephalograms to figure out what's going on in your brain. A special machine
measures your brain waves to create an electroencephalogram. No matter what you're
doing (even sleeping), your brain gives off electric waves. An electroencephalogram
machine measures these electric waves and shows where and how big they are. Pretty
neat, huh? Some kids have a lot of extra electricity flowing inside their brain, which
can cause things called seizures. An electroencephalogram does not hurt and it can help doctors
decide how to treat these kids.
