Human Behavior

Could someone have ADD even though the results of her EEG came back normal?

An EEG currently cannot diagnose ADHD (Attention Deficit

Hyperactivity Disorder, another name for ADD (Attention Deficit

Disorder). It can tell whether or not there are any areas of the

brain that are concerning for seizures or a lack of activity, but

they are not diagnostic of this condition. They have started trying

to use them to predict ADHD behaviors, but this is in the research

phase. I would suggest you see a physician and get tested for ADHD

in the normal fashion.
