The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Digital EEG

An Interactive Training Guide

second edition

Revised, updated, and expanded since first introduced in 2007, The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Digital EEG uses a live electroencephalogram reader, interactive computer programs, video, and traditional text to teach digital EEG reading.

Technological advances have largely rendered traditional paper EEG reading systems obsolete. The digital recordings now in use throughout most of the world carry the promise of greater accuracy and better diagnoses, but using the new software and interpreting the results require special training.

The Atlas incorporates a fully functional EEG reader that permits flexible filtering, scaling and montage changes, similar to "live" EEG readings. Users can learn to read key EEG patterns in various formats to optimize evaluation of patterns.

The Atlas also includes video examples of seizures and an accompanying Stellate signal file browser that allows synchronous viewing of selected seizure videos with corresponding EEGs.

Expert electroencephalographer Dr. Peter Kaplan narrates an extensive audio-EEG tutorial on how to read common and important EEG patterns.

The Atlas also includes MRI depiction of EEG electrode placement and a self-test of EEG skills. This second edition features expanded coverage of pediatric and infant EEG patterns, new EEGs, and updates on advanced EEG techniques for ICU recording, such as digital EEG processing with compressed spectral analysis and slow seizure pattern detections.

Gregory L. Krauss, M.D., is a professor of neurology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Robert S. Fisher, M.D., Ph.D., is the Maslah Saul, M.D., Professor of Neurology and director of the Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is past president of the American Epilepsy Society. Peter W. Kaplan, M.B.B.S., F.R.C.P.(Lon.), is a professor of neurology at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and director of the EEG/Epilepsy program at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. He is past president of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Association.

"With this second edition of a work already considered the standard textbook in digital EEG (d/EEG), these three noted epileptologists, Krauss, Fisher, and now Kaplan, have created a work that will become a classic in its field."

"Well-organized and sophisticated... as a teaching guide for clinical EEG, this atlas is highly recommended. Besides neurology residents, EEG technologists and physicians who are not experienced in clinical EEG will find this atlas a valuable reference."

"[A] practical introduction to reading EEG for residents, technologists, and practitioners."
