Link: posterior dominant rhythm

clinical significance

The presence of a normal reactive posterior dominant rhythm is indicative of a well-functioning brain and automatically rules out all sorts of pathology. In a patient with altered mental status where the differential includes seizures, encephalopathy, or something psychogenic, the presence of a normal reactive PDR is a very strong argument against the first two.

Link: 5 Types Of Brain Waves Frequencies: Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta

It is important to know that all humans display five different types of electrical patterns or “brain waves” across the cortex. The brain waves can be observed with an EEG (or an “electroencephalograph”) – a tool that allows researchers to note brain wave patterns. Each brain wave has a purpose and helps serve us in optimal mental functioning.
