Aim: There are many risk factors that cause significant neurologic damage in term and preterm infants who need intensive care. For these patients brain injury prevention has become the main goal of modern neonatalogy. Observing brain functions with electroencephalography (EEG) in newborns may be helpful in determining patients who carry increased risk factors for neurologic morbidity. The aim of this study is to compare the results of the synchronous amplitude EEG (aEEG) and conventional EEG (cEEG) in cases with newborn encephalopathy.
