Neurophysiology Tests 

Welcome to Melbourne Neurocare’s comprehensive guide to neurophysiology tests. Our commitment is to provide cutting-edge diagnostics and compassionate care to patients seeking answers and solutions for neurological conditions. Neurophysiology tests play a crucial role in evaluating the function of the nervous system, aiding in diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring of various neurological disorders. 

What are Neurophysiology Tests? 

Neurophysiology tests are non-invasive procedures that assess the function of the nervous system. These tests measure the electrical activity generated by neurons, muscles, and nerves, providing valuable insights into the health and integrity of the nervous system. By analyzing these electrical signals, neurophysiology tests help in diagnosing conditions such as epilepsy, neuropathy, muscle disorders, and movement disorders. 

Types of Neurophysiology Tests 

At Melbourne Neurocare, we offer a comprehensive range of neurophysiology tests performed by experienced neurologists and technologists. These tests include: 
1. Electroencephalography (EEG): EEG is a test that measures the electrical activity of the brain. It is used to diagnose and monitor conditions such as epilepsy, sleep disorders, and brain tumors. During an EEG, electrodes are placed on the scalp to record brainwave patterns. 
2. Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS): NCS measures the speed and strength of electrical signals as they travel along nerves. This test is helpful in diagnosing conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and nerve injuries. Electrodes are placed on the skin, and small electrical pulses are applied to stimulate nerves. 
3. Electromyography (EMG): EMG evaluates the electrical activity produced by muscles. It is used to diagnose muscle disorders, nerve compression syndromes, and motor neuron diseases. During an EMG, small needles are inserted into the muscles to record electrical signals.
