Abstract

This article focuses on the application of neurophysiologic monitoring in uniquely neurosurgical procedures. Neurophysiologic monitoring provides functional testing and mapping to identify neural structures. Once identified, the functionality of the central and peripheral nervous system areas at risk for neurosurgical injury can be monitored. It discusses the use of motor-evoked potentials, sensory evoked potentials, electromyography and electroencephalography to assess neurologic change.
