Clinical Neurophysiology

We provide a regional service investigating the function of your central (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral (nerves outside your brain and spinal cord) nervous systems.  

You are likely to be referred to us by your hospital consultant if you are experiencing seizures, pins and needles, episodes of weakness or are having trouble with your sleep (amongst many other reasons). 

We have particular expertise in spinal cord monitoring during scoliosis surgery, recording brain activity over long periods in Intensive Care settings and performing complex sleep studies in children.

We provide the following investigations:

  • routine and sleep-deprived Electroencephalography (EEG) 
  • long term EEG monitoring (Ambulatory, Video Telemetry)
  • cerebral Function Monitoring (CFAM)
  • electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
  • tri-modality Evoked Potentials (Auditory, Visual, Somatosensory)
  • intra-operative spinal cord monitoring
  • sleep Studies (Multiple Sleep Latency Tests, Polysomnography, maintenance of Wakefulness)
  • head-up tilt-table tests (HUTT)
