A consecutive series of violent juvenile delinquents and a consecutive series of adolescent psychiatric inpatients were studied with respect to their electroencephalograph (EEG), demography, psychiatric diagnosis, physical diagnosis, and intelligence. No difference was found in the prevalence of EEG abnormalities between the two groups and an association between EEG abnormality and juvenile delinquency was not established. These findings are discussed.
