Lecture, 65 - 69Tag this article
This lecture focuses on the impact of classic and modern electrophysiological techniques on the diagnostic approach to patients with neuromuscular disorders, placing emphasis on the limitations of currently used techniques and on the future prospects of clinical neurophysiology. The refinement of old techniques together with the development of new ones will hopefully improve the diagnostic capability of neurophysiology, improve understanding of the complex pathogenic mechanisms underlying neuromuscular disorders and help further the research of new therapeutic strategies.
