Sophia Wang, Silvana Riggio

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


EEG can be a helpful tool in the diagnosis of delirium, dementia and in the differentiation of these entities from a primary mood, anxiety or psychotic disorder. An EEG should be considered in cases in which the differential diagnosis represents a challenge to the clinician as it can be an invaluable, noninvasive, and relatively easy test to perform.
