Electroencephalogram and Evoked Potentials’ (EEG and EP) Lab

Located within the Neurology Clinic, we investigate disorders of the central nervous system by conducting two types of EEG and three types of EP tests.

An EEG measures the electrical activity of the brain in real-time and is used in the investigation of seizures/epilepsy as well as cognitive dysfunction. A routine EEG is performed with the patient predominantly awake. A sleep-deprived EEG has a goal of recording electrical activity during wakefulness as well as sleep.

An EP measures the response of the brain and spinal cord to electrical pulses initiated in the arm or leg. Visual evoked potentials, somatosensory evoked potentials, and brainstem auditory evoked potentials allow for the investigation of a variety of neurological conditions of the central nervous system.
