Our clinical neurophysiology team investigate neuromuscular and central nervous system diseases including:

  • epilepsy
  • carpal tunnel syndrome and other nerve entrapments
  • nerve injury and its prognosis
  • peripheral neuropathy
  • myopathy
  • motor neurone disease 
  • demyelination

We do this by carrying out tests of the functioning of the nervous system. Examples include electroencephalograms (EEGs) which measure brain electrical activity and nerve conduction studies which can help to assess the functioning of some nerves.

We receive adult and paediatric referrals for the following tests:

Some of the more specialist procedures we use include:
  • EEG videotelemetry
  • complex EMG
  • intraoperative monitoring
  • transcranial magnetic stimulation
