  • Focal Onset Impaired Awareness Seizure

    Electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring is performed to detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain.[britannica.com] Symptoms that follow include slowed speech, transfixed state when walking or relaxed grip when using hands.[cerebralpalsy.org] An EEG (electroencephalogram) will be done to check the electrical activity in the brain. People with seizures often have abnormal electrical activity seen on this test.[medlineplus.gov]
