The EEG findings of the vertebro-basilar insufficiency (IVB) are usually reported in the literature as being various and non specific, even when collected from large groups of cases. The results of a study performed on 21 subjects affected by dolico-mega-vertebro-basilar anomaly (DMVBA), which is one of the possible causes of IVB, show a dominant 'slow alpha' activity sometimes associated with temporal activity of the theta band. Even if 'slow alpha' activity is not a specific result, the high occurrence of this finding in a homogeneous group seems to have some clinical significance. The neurophysiological mechanisms of the 'slow alpha' activity and the possible origin of the temporal anomalies are also discussed.
