'EEG' Helps Diagnose Brain Disorders
[DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
By JOYCE FICKIES
An outstanding feature of mech-
anized medicine in Ann Arbor is
the electroencephalograph unit,
located in the sub-sub-basement
of the University Hospital.
The electric graphing process,
known as EEG, provides charts of
patients' brain waves and aids doc-
tors in diagnosis of many ailments
originating in the brain.
USED EXTENSIVELY both at
the local hospital and in most of
the large hospitals in the nation,
the graphing process was develop-
ed in 1929 and has been "going
strong" here for the last decade.
A staff of seven persons operates
the unit which is composed of five
The apparatus has helped di-
agnose such ailments as blood
clots, brain tumors, convulsive
disorders and atrophy of the
The brain wave graph itself is
made by means of a series of elec-
trodes fastened to the patient's
head. These electrodes or "leads"
carry electrical impulses from the
brain into a machine which ampli-
fies them more than a million
times and records them as a wavy
Differences in voltage appear on
the graph as variations in the fre-
quency of pulsations per second.
By observing these differences,
doctors can diagnose the patient's
USING EEG to localize brain
tumors has been a Hospital spec-
ialty. This is accomplished by
placing the electrodes above key
centers of the brain and compar-
ing voltages and wave lengths to
determine the exact place of the'
But the newest development
in the use of the electroence-
phalograph is in the operating
There the apparatus can be
applied directly to the exposed
brain during certain types of op-
erations. This new development
has been used more than a year
at the Hospital, one of the four or
five in the nation to use it thus
Prof. B. K. Bagchi of the elec-
troencephalography section of the
Medical School's psychiatry de-
partment, director of the unit, em-
phasized that the process has no
relation to electric shock treat-
ments given to mental patients.
