Myogenic activity from facial myokymia, hemifacial spasm, facial synkinesis, palatal myoclonus, tongue movement, or tremor produces characteristic, and often distinctive changes in the EEG recording. Recognition by the electroencephalographer and EEG technologist can be helpful for accurate evaluation of the EEG and can provide useful diagnostic information to the neurologist.
