First, draw a line horizontally across a piece of paper, at least 15 cm long (Tegner and Levander 1991), and then place the paper directly in front of, and square to, the patient. The patient is then asked to bisect the line. Next, draw numerous short marks in a random fashion on a piece of paper, placing the paper squarely in front of the patient and asking the patient to mark or cancel out all the lines. Finally, position a blank piece of paper in front of the patient with the instruction to draw a clock face on it, with all the numbers, 1 to 12, on the drawing.

In a longitudinal bipolar montage, the pairings proceed ipsilaterally, from anterior to posterior, producing 'chains' of channels, such as Fpl-F3, F3-C3, C3-P3 and Ps-Oi. In a transverse bipolar montage, the chain proceeds across the scalp, from left to right, for example F7-F3, F3-FZ, FZ-F4, F4-F8. It is appropriate to note here that, in the chains of a bipolar montage, one individual elecrode may serve as the second electrode in one channel and the first electrode of the next. In the chain noted above containing channels Fpl-F3, F3-C3, C3-P3 and P3-Oi, for example, note that electrode F3 serves as the second electrode for the first channel (Fpl-F3) and the first electrode for the next channel (F3-C3).

The scalp electrode is commonly referred to as the 'active' electrode, in contrast to the reference electrode, which is termed 'indifferent'. This terminology is, however, not accurate because the ear electrode in fact picks up electrical activity arising from the temporal lobe and is thus only 'relatively' indifferent. In some instances, other electrodes, or combinations of electrodes, will be used instead of one ear: thus, the reference electrode may be found on the angle of the mandible, or an 'average reference electrode' may be produced by averaging the electrical activity of a large number of scalp electrodes (Goldman 1950).
