The basic physiology of the EEG and its rhythms has been the topic of intense research since its discovery in the 1920s, the subject of innumerable textbooks and articles. In this overview, we present some of the basic principles of neurophysiology, followed by a description of which elements constitute the EEG recording in general. We conclude with the underlying pathophysiology of some of the normal and abnormal EEG findings.
