Electroneurodiagnostic technologists record the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. This activity is recorded by electrodes on the scalp or other regions of the body, using the electroencephalographic (EEG) and other electrophysiological equipment, including NCS (nerve conduction studies), IONM (intraoperative monitoring), EP (evoked potentials), and PSG (polysomnography or sleep studies). Electroneurodiagnostic technologists must have a thorough knowledge of euromedicine, be able to recognize the activity recorded by their instruments and be able to communicate the information effectively to other health care personnel.
