Evoked Potentials (EPs) measure cerebral electrical activity in response to physical stimulation that can be visual, auditory, or tactile.
Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) evaluates the functional integrity of the visual pathways by placing the electrodes on the scalp to record the electrical signal while, i.e., the patient watches a pattern flash on a screen or a flash via a lamp or a google. A Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potential (BAEP) check the acoustic pathways via an auditory stimulus (a series of tone or click) with the recording electrodes positioned on the scalp and the earlobes. Somato-Sensory Evoked Potential (SSEP) assesses the functionality of the somatosensory pathways that links the somatosensory cortex to the peripheral nervous system.
EB Neuro designed advanced portable systems as Nemus and Nemus 2 to perform EMG/ENG/EP exams even in the most critical environments.
