Visual evoke responses asses the visual nervous system from the eye to the brain. It is used to evaluate optic neuritis, eye tumors, retinal disorders and demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
An electroencephalogram is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain by using electrodes (sensors) attached to your head.
Somatosensory Evoke Potential is a test that checks the electrical signals of sensation going from the body or limbs to the brain. It shows whether the nerves that connect to your spinal cord are able to send and receive sensory information like pain, temperature, and touch.
Nerve conduction studies uses electrodes taped to the skin(surface electrodes) to measure speed and strength of signal traveling between two or more points on a limb or face.
A brainstem auditory evoked response test measures how your brain processes the sounds you head. This test can help to diagnose hearing loss and nervous system disorder.
EMG allows the physician to measure the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction.

Neurology deals with the treatment of diseases affecting the nervous system. That includes the central as well as the peripheral nervous system. The spinal cord and the brain are the major organs of the nervous system. Neurology deals with not only the nerves, but also the coverings for the nerves, the blood vessels, muscles and tissues.
The nerves of our body are integral to our daily life and are often taken for granted, until something goes wrong and we aren’t able to live and work as we used to. Nerves transmit signals from the brain to the organs of our body, making us do what we do at the appropriate time. Problems with the nervous system can significantly affect our quality of life, and is something a good deal of Americans are grappling with.
VNG is a series of tests used to determine the causes of a patient’s dizziness or balance disorders. It helps determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease may be causing a balance or dizziness problem. It is a series of tests designed to document a persons ability to follow visual objects with their eyes and how well the eyes respond to information from the vestibular system.
