EEG is a complex summation of many frequencies.

  • Different frequencies sometimes add to or cancel each other, creating odd waveforms or fluctuations of waveforms.

  • Pseudospikes or pseudoslow waves may be seen with intermixing of waves.

  • Many fascinating patterns have been generated by mixing artificially created computer-generated frequencies. These waveforms have the significance of the basic waveforms that underlie the patterns.
