Electrophysiological studies of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system—the core investigations in clinical neurophysiology—include electroencephalography, evoked potentials, electromyography, and nerve conduction studies. These provide information from anatomical regions which may not be accessible to direct pathological examination, and are good for tracking changes over time. However, they do not provide direct information about pathological changes in the nervous system, hence it is often necessary to supplement electrophysiological findings by imaging or other laboratory studies, and it is mandatory to view all results in their clinical context....
