This should address your issues:
- dictionary of terms
- what waves mean
- how to connect some activity in waves to brain activity... etc
Why consult encyclopedic references when you only need the essentials?
Practical Approach to Electroencephalography, by Mark H. Libenson, MD,
equips you with just the right amount of guidance you need for
obtaining optimal EEG results! It presents a thorough but readable
guide to EEGs, explaining what to do, what not to do, what to look
for, and how to interpret the results. It also goes beyond the
technical aspects of performing EEGs by providing case studies of the
neurologic disorders and conditions in which EEGs are used, making
this an excellent learning tool. Abundant EEG examples throughout help
you to recognize normal and abnormal EEGs in all situations.
Presents enough detail and answers to questions and problems
encountered by the beginner and the non-expert. Uses abundant EEG
examples to help you recognize normal and abnormal EEGs in all
situations. Provides expert pearls from Dr. Libenson that guide you in
best practices in EEG testing. Features a user-friendly writing style
from a single author that makes learning easy. Examines the
performance of EEGs—along with the disorders for which they’re
performed—for a resource that considers the patient and not just the
technical aspects of EEGs. Includes discussions of various disease
entities, like epilepsy, in which EEGs are used, as well as other
special issues, to equip you to handle more cases.

Practical Approach to Electroencephalography differs from other EEG texts of its level in that it takes the time to explain itself, resulting in a far more readable albeit less portable text than other condensed introductory texts.
