The Neurophysiology Laboratory provides diagnostic testing for adults and children to determine how the nervous system functions. The laboratory offers a type of brain wave testing called Electroencephalography, or EEG. The laboratory also conducts Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCV), and a cerebral angiogram to assess blood vessels in the brain, known as the Wada test. These procedures and tests are used to localize epileptic seizures, evaluate neuromuscular symptoms and provide data for neurosurgical planning. The laboratory also provides specialized services to inpatients undergoing procedures on the brain, spinal cord or nerves to help surgeons minimize the risk of damage.
