Services

The newly refurbished neurophysiology department is based at City Hospital and offers a wide range of investigations for both adults and children who can be referred to our service by their GP or hospital consultant.

The following types of investigations are carried out by this department:

  • EEG (Electroencephalogram)  – Recording of electrical activity of the brain.
  • Sleep EEG – An EEG whilst asleep.
  • Ambulatory EEG – An EEG recorded over 24 hours or more.
  • Prolonged EEG with video monitoring – An EEG recorded over 24 hours or more that is also video recorded.
  • Nerve Conduction Studies – Test to see how certain nerves are working.
  • EMG (electromyography) – Test to see how certain muscles are working.
  • Evoked potential tests – Test to see how your brain responds to light, sound or touch.
  • Screening for damage to the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord).
