The laboratory is equipped with a closed-circuit TV recording system and scanner reading equipment.

The laboratory provides standard nerve conduction testing and electromyography with special expertise in neuromuscular disease, single-fiber EMG, near-nerve EMG, evoked potentials, intraoperative neurophysiology, botulinum/chemo degeneration and pediatric EMG.
