EEG technicians prepare, operate and maintain electroencephalograph machines. They obtain medical histories of patients' neurological disorders, such as epilepsy or sleep disorders, and they apply electrodes to patients' heads, chests, arms, legs or spinal columns, depending on the EEG procedure.

When conducting an EEG, techs must display an understanding of and adherence to lab policies and procedures. They must be able to correct for electrical and mechanical interference, in addition to reading and distinguishing particular kinds of brainwave patterns.
