Brief Summary:
The main objective of the study is to evaluate the use of EEG in the management and follow-up of neuropsychiatric disorders. Secondary objectives are therefore better understanding of the pathological activations in neural network during neuropsychiatric disorders, their clinical evolution and response to therapies.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Personality Disorder Depression Neurodegeneration Alzheimer's Disease Epilepsy Device: EEG recording Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Patients are having EEG recordings as a routine part of their clinical evaluation and diagnosis. EEG recording is harmless, has no side effects, any radiation or any mechanical or electrical influence. It is of short duration and may be done in the EEG institute or the patient's room.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. percentage of fitting (0-100%) of EEG pattern to a previously identified electrophysiological "key" [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    The study will decode an EEG-based "key" (or electrophysiological pattern) for specific effect (such as the use of anti-epileptic agent or a certain condition) by comparing EEG before and after the use of this agent. For each patient the statistical fitting of the recorded EEG to the key will be evaluated by percentage (0-100%), describing fitting of the individual patient's EEG to the identified key.
