The intention of this paper was to review the literature on the use of EEG in headache evaluation and recommend clinical applications of this technique. The consensus of published findings was that EEG can differentiate migraineurs from controls but that it is not justified for routine diagnosis of headache etiology. We conclude that neuroimaging is a superior technique for detecting underlying structural lesions.
