1924 - 6 July - Hans Berger recorded signals from an intact skull, University of Jena, Germany. discovery of the human electroencephalogram, which he called "Elektroenkephalogramm."
In 1929 results in paper called "On the Electroencephalogram in Man" the first frequency he encountered was the 10-hertz range,
which at first was called the Berger rhythm, currently called Alpha rhythm. Hans Berger thus earned the recognition of "Father of Electroencephalography."
The central theme in Berger's work was the search for the correlation between objective activity of the brain and subjective psychic phenomena.
