Brain Imaging in the 21st Century

Brain monitoring science, technology, and applications are finding new dimensions in this century. In the past, a brainwave scan (electroencephalogram) was used when something was “wrong.” EEG’s were the domain of doctors in general, and neurologists in particular. EEG’s were for seizures, sleep disorders, head injuries, and other serious problems. Today, EEG can be used when something goes “right.” We are starting to use EEG’s to map and understand everything from meditation to healing, sports performance, dance, and music.
