Clinical Neurophysiology

Welcome to Clinical Neurophysiology!

Clinical neurophysiology comprises both basic research regarding the pathophysiology, as well as clinical methods used in the diagnosis of diseases involving the central nervous system, peripheral nerves and muscular system. The clinical neurophysiologist has a dual mission implying the search for new knowledge as well as implementing this knowledge in the clinical setting in a way that the patients can profit from this co-operation.

The clinical neurophysiologic examination is an extension of a neurologic consultation, not just a set of laboratory tests. It does not only verify or exclude a clinical suspicion but also gives precise definition of site, type and degree of lesion and reveal abnormalities that are clinically uncertain, silent or unsuspected. In general, the neurophysiologic methods describe and quantify functions and pathophysiologic changes in central and peripheral nervous system and muscles.
