This electrical activity is detected by electrodes or sensors, placed on the patient's scalp and transmitted to a polygraph that records the activity. Electrical signals produced by the brain neurons are picked up by the electrodes and transmitted to a polygraph, where they produce separate graphs on moving paper using an ink writing pen or on a computer screen.
