The History of EEG Hans Berger

  • T. J. La Vaque

Abstract

Historically, Hans Berger deserves undisputed credit for the discovery of the human electroencephalograph. It is rarely reported that his discovery was the result of a 40-year search for the physical basis of mind. The search began as a result of a near-death "telepathic" experience in his youth. The history of Hans Berger reveals him to be a dedicated scientist fascinated with psychophysiology and, in the end, a tragic figure.
