EEG and Sleep Testing FAQ

For a few weeks prior to the scheduled test, try to follow your normal sleep routines. You should arrive for testing neither deprived of sleep nor over-rested.

Do not drink or eat any products containing caffeine (coffee, tea, carbonated beverages, chocolate) for one day before the test.

Take a shower or bath before the test, but do not apply sprays, oils, or gels to your hair.
