Key Features

The exposition is systematically organized into the following three parts:

Nerve Conduction: It discusses the basis of electrodiagnostic signals and their measurements. The techniques of performing nerve conduction tests of various nerves have been illustrated with a series of simple line diagrams.

Electromyography: It deals with the basis of EMG signals, their recording and interpretation. The application of myography in various myopathies and neurogenic disorders has been discussed in detail. A review of single fiber electromyography is included.

Evoked Potentials: This covers visual, brainstem, somatosensory and motor evoked potentials.
