Neurology is a branch of medical science that generally examines the diseases of the brain, brainstem, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system and muscles, and includes treatment applications other than diagnosis and surgery.

It is a neurological examination method based on the examination of the electrical potential of nerve and striped muscles.
EMG is the abbreviated name of the term electromyography. It is a muscle examination that monitors and interprets the electrical activity that provides the muscles to contract. When it comes to EMG examination in daily use, it means a whole set of tests that includes muscle examination as well as the meaning of muscle examination.
EMG is associated with nerve roots, such as in hernia and neck hernias, as well as in facial paralysis, carpal tunnel syndrome, common diseases of the peripheral nervous system, such as in diabetes mellitus, traumatic injuries of the peripheral nerves, motor neuron disease, myasthenia gravis, myopatigia. It is used in diagnosis.
How is EMG done?
EMG inspection is done in two parts:
1) Measurement of nerve conduction,
2) Examination of the muscles. Depending on your diagnosis, either or only one of these may need to be done. EMG procedure is done by the doctor. The inspection period is between 15 minutes and 1.5 hours depending on the scope of the planned operation.
The procedure to measure the normal electrical activity of the brain is called EEG. EEG is a method that allows normal and abnormal electrical activities originating from brain cells to be recorded over the scalp. It can be used in many neurological diseases, especially epilepsy and changes in consciousness.
What is the Purpose of EEG?
The eeg'ninamac; supporting the diagnosis, classification, researching the focal brain lesion and monitoring of epilepsy patients.
In which situations is EEG performed?
The normal electrical activity of the brain is disrupted in many cases, especially epilepsy.
With the evaluation of the brain waves that occur during EEG, information about the location and shape of this disorder is obtained.
EEG is performed in the evaluation of brain functions in many nervous diseases, especially epilepsy (epilepsy) disease, in investigating the causes of headaches.
How To EEG?
In EEG, gravity occurs by placing small electrodes on the scalp, that is, by means of a conductive substance called "paste". The electrical potential changes between these two electrodes are recorded on the computer and the result is interpreted by the expert and the patient is given the necessary information. In the examination of the record obtained, based on the presence of deviations compared to normal, many working disorders (epilepsy, etc.) of the brain can be diagnosed.
In adults, it is necessary to clean the hair one day before the shooting. The patient does not need to be hungry or thirsty before the examination. For sleep EEG capture, the sick person may need to stay sleepless for a certain period of time. In children, shooting is usually done during sleep. For easy shooting, it is recommended that the child is laid late and removed early.
