   Don't worry, lady!
When EEG'ing we never use any sedatives (they mix up the picture, and we
have to have it clean). And only God knows how anybody can get hepatitis
from the electrodes that are applied on the skin of a scull!!!
Don't be afraid. We study what the brain itself produces. And it is the
safest possible test of all known.
