Whittingham Asylum - EEG Machine
Building started in 1869 & Opened on 1 April 1873, Closed 1995
This is one of the old Electroencephalogram machines that recorded electrical activity along the scalp.
EEG measures voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain.
In clinical contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time, usually 20–40 minutes, as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp.
