A thorough understanding of a normal EEG is critical in defining those patterns that are abnormal. Because EEG is unique in the ability to support a clinical diagnosis of epilepsy, epileptiform patterns merit careful consideration. Certain benign patterns maybe epileptiform, yet can occur in healthy individuals without epilepsy. Understanding normal EEG and the benign variants will help to minimize over-interpretation and possibly avoid overtreatment of patients during routine clinical practice.
