The existence of a resting electroencephalogram (EEG) marker of mild head injury (MHO has recently been demonstrated using recording and analysis techniques that arc over 20 years old. The most advanced EEGs use information from magnetic resonance imaging to produce images of superficial cortical activity with split-second resolution of neurocognitive processes such as attention and working memory, and with spatial detail approaching that of 015 positron emission tomography scans. When they become more widely available in a few years, these high-resolution EEGs may prove quite useful in detecting and characterizing the often elusive cognitive disabilities of patients with MHI.
