Applied technology for the improvement of neurophysiological health

Diagnostics that help early detection of health conditions

The Unit of Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology is under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dr Alejandro Scaramelli, who, together with Dr Cecilia Orellana, prepare the medical reports.

The tests that are carried out at the Unit include:

• Conventional Electroencephalography (EEG), with sleep deprivation or induced sleep, and/or with intermittent light stimulation.

• Long term simultaneous Video-EEG Monitoring - This test is very useful to differentiate diagnoses between epileptic seizures and episodes of another nature, and to establish the type of syndrome with greater precision.

• Polysomnography (Sleep test) - is indicated, among other tests, for patients with possible sleep apnoea, excessive daytime sleepiness and different types of insomnia.
