Abstract : The electroencephalogram (EEG), discovered more than half a century ago, is still the only non-invasive, simple and objective method to continuously and repetitively study brain function, and has recently gained new significance since quantification by microprocessors was developed. Quantification of single-lead EEG proved to be of significant value in psychotropic drug development. Discoveries of the psychotropic properties of drugs and the determination of the bioavailability of CNS-active compounds validated this method. They demonstrated that the brain's bioelectrical activity, even recorded in only one area of the brain, can represent brain function and is closely associated with human behavior. A newly-developed brain function monitoring system using multi-lead, broad frequency spectrum computer-analyzed EEG (CEEG) with Dynamic Brain Mapping seems to be a very promising methodology to study human behavior and to monitor its changes due to external and internal factors.
