What we do
Neurophysiology is concerned with the investigation of function in the central and peripheral nervous system.
Neurophysiologists investigate the function of the nervous system to diagnose and monitor neurological disorders, including epilepsy, strokes, dementia, nerve and muscle dysfunction and multiple sclerosis.
- EEG (electroencephalography) - a recording of the electrical activity of the brain from the intact scalp
- Evoked potentials - these are potentials produced by the brain in response to specific stimuli, for example a flashing light or sounds, such as a click
- EMG (electromyography) and NCS (nerve conduction studies) - these assess function of the nerves and muscles within the body.
