This group of 20 papers, by 33 authors, was presented at a conference held in Goteborg, Sweden, in August 1967. An earlier related conference was held in Houston in 1963; hence, the present publication is volume 2.
The first two papers deal with the ontogenesis of electrocortical activity and the physiological basis of alpha waves, both based on animal experimentation. Next are several reports on the electroencephalographic findings in infants and in prognosticating future development. Following this is a report of the similarity of the wave-frequency spectrum in twins and then a very technical paper on the correlation of the frequency of 14 per second and 6 per second positive-spike activity. The last 11 papers deal with various clinical topics: epileptic EEG activity in children, the use of EEG in focal brain lesions, "anoxic cerebral seizures," subacute sclerosing leukoencephalitis, lipoidoses, and dyslexia.
As far as subject material is concerned, the
