    Could someone please explain to me the logic of the new EEG recommendations with the new scoring criteria. Why frontal?

    It is for measuring the amplitude of frontal activity and recognition of N3.

    The manual however forgot to clarify if N3 was to be scored from the frontals.

    I have an email at work from the aasm saying to continue to score from the centrals – I’ll post it Monday.

    I don’t have my manual here at home so I don’t recall if there other justifications/reasons or not. I recall it also mentions Kcomplexes will be more readily recognizable from the frontals.

    There will be a course devoted to this in Dec:
