Are Brain Waves as Unique as Fingerprints?

See this previous article on a similar topic. Also, see this video about the "Neuro" Revolution and Brain Finger Printing.
When children enter adolescence their brains begin to undergo a series of rapid changes – actually a sort of neural overhaul – shedding what was needed in childhood and adding functions and abilities that are critical in adulthood.
Despite these considerable and ongoing changes, when something in the brain remains so steadily unaltered, neuroscientists take notice.
In a study co-authored by Dr. Mary Carskadon, professor of psychiatry at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and director of the Sleep Research Laboratory at E.P. Bradley Hospital, researchers have found that most of their teenage study subjects maintained a unique and consistent pattern of underlying brain oscillations.
This observation appears to support an idea, already observed in adults, that people produce a kind of unique brain wave “fingerprint.”
