An electroencephalogram (EEG) is the medical test neurologists in our McKinney clinic use to measure the electrical activity of the brain. During an EEG, electrodes are applied to the scalp, helping to diagnose different conditions, including epilepsy, sleep disorders and brain tumors.
Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic procedure that assesses the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). The results of an EMG at our neurology clinic can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
Evoked potential tests measure the time it takes for the brain to respond to sensory stimulation through sight, sound or touch. Evoked potential tests can help neurologists detect conditions that can cause a person's reactions to be slow.
Nerve condition study
A nerve condition study measures how fast an electrical impulse moves through your nerve, which can show if the nerve has damage or not.
