The Neurophysiology Laboratory provides state-of-the-art neurophysiological testing for our patients of all ages – while they are in the hospital or at a clinic visit. We offer a wide range of advanced tests, including:
An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that records and evaluates the electrical activity in the brain. There are different ways that EEG is used to diagnose and monitor and variety of conditions:
Intraoperative intracranial prolonged EEG carefully monitors brain activity during surgery for electrical activity of the brain, such as seizure onset.
Intraoperative functional brain mapping is used to localize and identify areas of functional capability, including speech, movement and visual function to successfully preserve function in the removal of the epilepsy focus.
An outpatient prolonged video EEG records both physical or behavioral activity with brain activity to determine correlations.
Our advanced portable EEG equipment, within our 14-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, allows for continuous monitoring over several days to identity, classify and localize seizures. In addition, our extensive long-term video EEG is used for both medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy, but also careful monitoring in critical care areas for Neonatal, Pediatric, and Cardiovascular Intensive Care.
If your child is coming to Arkansas Children’s for an electroencephalogram (EEG), you may have some questions about how to prepare for your visit. Here are some helpful tips:
