Neurophysiology is a branch of physiology used to study the functions of the nervous system. It is concerned with the investigation of function in the central and peripheral nervous system. It assists the diagnosis of neurological disorders and plays a role in monitoring people who have disorders affecting the brain including viral encephalitis, meningitis, strokes or are suffering with dementia. Neurophysiology is related to other sciences concerning the brain like electrophysiology, neurobiology, and neurology. Clinical neurophysiology is a medical specialty encompassing both research regarding the pathophysiology along with clinical methods used to diagnose diseases involving both central and peripheral nervous systems.
