OriginEdit

Hans Berger (1873 – 1941) was a German psychiatrist, best known as the inventor of electroencephalography (EEG) or the recording of brain waves. He discovered the alpha wave rhythm known as 'Berger's wave' in 1924. Using the EEG he was also the first to describe the different waves or rhythms which were present in the normal and abnormal brain and its suppression when the subject opens their eyes. Alpha waves could be a way for Berger to study dreams and inner desires. He also studied and described for the first time the nature of EEG alterations in brain diseases such as epilepsy.

As a professor in Psychology he worked with students to further his research however it came to an end when the Nazi regime came into power as he was against their policies. However because of having a civil relationship with them he was declared a Nazi supporter which sent him into a deep depression and eventually let to his suicide. The notepad was one of the few possessions he had in the hospital where he died.
