This book is an essential and important addition to pediatric electroencephalographic literature. Accurate interpretation of infants' and children's EEG recordings has always been a special problem of the electroencephalographer. Maturation of the brain progresses steadily with advance in age and is reflected in the electroencephalogram by a series of changes in electrical patterns. These changes are frequently subtle in nature. Although no book can serve as a substitute for personal experience in reading large numbers of tracings, it can be extremely helpful, especially through reproduction of actual records, in directing the attention of the inexperienced electroencephalographer to these significant changes.

Dr. Fois' book describes concisely, without sparing details, the technique for obtaining satisfactory children's records. He has not only described the basic characteristics of normal electroencephalograms during waking, drowsing, and sleeping states for infants and children from 1 month to 14 years of age but has included over 100 reproductions
