As I said in the other post, check out those researchers' sites as
they have loads of papers for download, many of them to do with the
origin of the EEG and thus of what use it is as a diagnostic tool. 
Freeman's work might be especially useful in preparing the ground for
the use of the EEG in looking at neuropsychological disorders becuase
he deals a lot in the EEG in perception.  I would also suggest you
look up magnetoencephalography (MEG) which has similar uses to EEG. 
If you look up "vectorview" you'll get a website for MEG equippment (a
bit strange looking and v. expensive!) but they also have loads of
refernces to papers validating the technique.  As for EEG kit,
shouldn't be hard to find.
