Answer

Frequency: Records that are excessively slow or fast are unusual in neonates. Rarely, a neonatal record consists of diffuse delta activity in both waking and sleep states, minimal theta or faster frequencies, and poor reactivity. When these conditions persist longer than 2 weeks in FT neonates, the prognosis is poor.
