Department of Clinical Neurophysiology

About Department of Clinical Neurophysiology

The department of Clinical Neurophysiology is internationally acclaimed for its highly specialised diagnostic services and comprehensive research and clinical development activities. 

The department is particularly renowned for the development and use of quantitative EMG and nerve conduction studies with near-nerve needle technique in the examination of patients with neuromuscular disorders. In addition, state-of-the-art facilities are used for the diagnosis of patients with CNS disorders, including epilepsy (EEG, MEG) and sleep disorders (PSG, MSLT).

Research is strongly integrated in our clinical practice. Focusing on improving the diagnosis of patients with diseases of the central and peripheral nerve systems as well as obtaining new pathophysiological knowledge, a wide range of different approaches are applied.

The department has a close collaboration with other Danish and European neurophysiological departments in research and quality development projects. In addition several doctors of foreign nationalities work in the clinic or conduct research at the department.
