Research Facts
Grass Instruments was one of the first EEG instrument companies in America. (The first EEG instruments were delivered to Mass General and Boston Children's Hospitals within a day of each other.)
This electrode clipped onto the earlobe to act as a reference lead in recording electrical activity of the brain.
Electroencephalography is an electrophysiological monitoring method to record electrical activity of the brain. It is typically noninvasive, with the electrodes placed along the scalp, although invasive electrodes are sometimes used, as in electrocorticography, sometimes called intracranial EEG.
EEG results show changes in brain activity that may be useful in diagnosing brain conditions, especially epilepsy and other seizure disorders. An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp.

Research Facts
A device for measuring ocular refraction. Instrument for measuring the refractive state of the eye. There are two main types of optometers: subjective and objective. Subjective optometers rely upon the subject's judgment of sharpness or blurredness of a test object while objective ones contain an optical system which determines the vergence of light reflected from the subject's retina.
It was illegal for optometrists to use optometers after 1919, but they were frequently given away by mail order companies with the spectacle order forms.
