Abstract

1. Electroencephalographic examinations were performed on 28 children who had been brought before the Domestic Relations Court of the City of New York.2. In 61 per cent of the entire group, the brain potentials suggested an underlying disorder in brain function. When only those with behavior disorders were considered, 74 per cent showed abnormal activity.3. These findings, which are similar to those found by other investigators, suggest the presence of an underlying cerebral disorder in a majority of children with severe behavior disorders.[See Source PDF for the Illustrations]
