The Measurement of Brain Electrical Activity and Its Significance to the Educator.
Torello, Michael W.
The article discusses the measurement of brain electrical activity and, in particular, the examination of electroencephalographic (EEG) data, as providing useful information in the diagnosis of dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Topographic imaging of EEG (TIE) is described as a procedure which provides functional data at comparatively low cost without invasive procedures or radiation exposure, and is considered potentially useful as a practical diagnostic tool.
