Answer

Like differences the PDR, amplitude asymmetries of the mu rhythm alone are rarely associated with focal pathology. The mu rhythm is unilateral in about 30% of healthy patients, at least in the routine EEG. A change in the frequency or rhythmicity of the mu or the intrusion of slower activities is a reliable indicator of ipsilateral pathology.
