The testing available at the OLBH Neurology Department allows physicians to view how a patient's brain and/or nervous systems are functioning. These tests aid in the diagnosis of some of the more serious neurological problems including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, strokes, Parkinson's Disease and other neurological disorders, as well as common ones such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

• Electroencephalograms (EEG)
• Nerve conductions (NCV)
• Electromyography (EMG)
• Videonystagmography Testing (VNG)
