Several additions and extensions to the 10–20 System have been proposed. The major sets of proposals are reviewed here. The principal uses of these additional scalp recording sites are for clinical evoked potential testing and for acquisition of EEGs from very large numbers of scalp sites. Three separate systematic nomenclatures have arisen for filling in the half-step gaps in the 10–20 placements. These are compared and contrasted here.
