NEUROLOGY:

  • Electroencephalography
  • Evoked Potentials
  • Nerve Conduction



  • BrainNeurophysiology is concerned with the investigation of function in the central and peripheral nervous system. Neurophysiologists work in neurophysiology and are specialist practitioners that investigate the function of the nervous system to diagnose and monitor neurological disorders, including epilepsy, strokes, dementia, nerve and muscle dysfunction and multiple sclerosis and can assist in the diagnosis and management of behavioural conditions.

    They work directly with inpatients and outpatients of all ages (neonates, babies, children, adults and the elderly), usually in dedicated environments, intensive care settings and in the operating theatre. The care of these patients is multidisciplinary and can be complicated so the practitioner needs effective communication and team working skills.

    NerveNeurophysiology is a specialist field that develops quickly and where increasingly high technology and computerisation are employed. Investigations range from various modalities of electroencephalography (EEG) to nerve conduction studies (NCS) to evoked potentials (EP) and so the neurophysiologist requires a high degree of accuracy and careful attention to detail.
