Answer

Electroencephalographic results have been found to be outside the reference range in some patients with MS, but the findings are nonspecific. Nonspecific electroencephalographic abnormalities can also be seen in normal individuals in the general population. A small study by Vazquez-Marrufo et al found that on quantitative electroencephalography, benign MS and relapsing-remitting MS produce different physiologic profiles. [84]
