EEG & Video Ambulatory EEG
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp.
An EEG is one of the main diagnostic tests for epilepsy. An EEG can also play a role in diagnosing other brain disorders.
Neurology is the branch of medicine concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complex, sophisticated system that regulates and coordinates body activities
Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) is a diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.

Routine EEG & Video Ambulatory EEG
Routine EEG (Electroencephalogram)
Your doctor may request a routine EEG to better understand episodes of confusion, inattention, or seizure disorders.
At Selkirk Neurology, our trained technologists will review your medical history and meet with you to explain the test and answer questions you may have. They administer your EEG testing in clinic, which includes attaching painless electrodes to the scalp to measure your brain’s response to specific stimuli.
Your neurologist will use the results from this procedure to aid in the diagnosis of your medical condition.
Video Ambulatory EEG
If your doctor needs more information about causes of seizures, confusion or inattention, they may order a video ambulatory EEG.
For this procedure, our technologist will attach the electrodes to your scalp and cover them with a protective wrapping. You will be sent home with a small back-pack size recorder to capture your brain’s electrical activity over a 2-3 day period and a video camera to capture any active episodes.
Your neurologist will use the results from this testing, along with the video to aid in the diagnosis of your medical condition.
At Selkirk Neurology, our skilled technologists are available to answer any questions you may have regarding this test.
Electromyography / Nerve Conduction Study
Routine EMG (Electromyography)
Your doctor may order EMG and nerve testing to secure further evidence for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched nerves, peripheral neuropathy, and other nerve disorders.
At Selkirk Neurology, you will be scheduled for this test and cared for in the clinic by our qualified staff of technologists and a neurology provider.
This is a two-part test.
The first part of the test involves our technologist using small electrical charges to stimulate your nerve and measure its’ health. Your assigned neurologist will then insert a small needle just underneath the skin to “listen” to nerve and muscle communication.
Test results are provided directly to the referring provider. They will follow up with you and address any questions regarding your test and future care.
Please dress accordingly for access to your arms and legs as testing requires. Gowns are available.
