Electromyography and Nerve conduction studies
- Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). During a needle EMG, a needle electrode inserted directly into a muscle records the electrical activity in that muscle. EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
- Nerve conduction study, performed as part of an EMG, uses electrodes attached to the skin to measure the speed and strength of signals transmitting through the nerves.
- An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in the brain using small, flat metal discs (electrodes) attached to the scalp. This activity is recorded as wavy lines on an EEG recording.
- EEG is used for diagnosis of epilepsy. An EEG may also play a role in diagnosing other brain disorders such as dementia etc.
- Evoked potentials studies measure electrical activity in the brain in response to stimulation of sight, sound, or touch. Stimuli delivered to the brain through each of these senses evoke minute electrical signals. These signals travel along the nerves and through the spinal cord to specific regions of the brain and are picked up by electrodes, amplified, and displayed for a doctor to interpret.
- Different types of evoked potentials studies
1. Visual evoked response (VER) test.
2. Brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) test.
3. Somatosensory evoked response (SSER) test.
