Neurophysiology can conveniently be divided into two broad groups: <br>Electrical signal sampling and measurement (spontaneous or evoked) such as in EMG (NEE) in the periphery, or EEG, EPs and basal ganglia centrally &lt;br&gt; Stimulation and evoking techniques such as in NCS, EPs, and a variety of treatment types. <br>Often the two are combined as in NCS and EPs or EEG mapping for epilepsy surgery. <br>Both areas have improved and been applied to very specific targets, with good clinical success in highly specialised centres. <br>Neurophysiology has advanced in specific areas: &lt;br&gt; video EEG monitoring as in epilepsy surgery and pseudoseizures &lt;br&gt; stimulation of various parts of the nervous system, such as the vagal nerve and basal ganglia. <br>Some conditions are now better recognised, e.g. chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculo-neuropathy and mixed motor neuropathy. <br>The skill and experience of the operators / clinicians determines the quality of the work.
