Need an explanation? See the Quick Introduction to clinical neurophysiology
This web site describes a personal view of clinical neurophysiology from a British perspective. Please read the Site Guide for an explanation of the site's philosophy. The site is evolving - please review the What's New section from time to time for an update. I welcome feedback, suggestions and contributions through the Contact page.
For an "official" site please see the excellent site of the British Society for Clinical Neurophysiology (BSCN). This was re-launched in its third implementation in Autumn 2008.
Finally, this site can be reached from several addresses (variants of the name). You will get the best response from clinicalneurophysiology.org.uk - that's without a hyphen and in the .org not .co subdomain.
Thanx a mil, Abena Oseilah , for drawing our attention to the radio 4's high TRP rated INSIDE HEALTH programme featuring our colleague Dr Jeremy Bland. For those who wish to listen to the excellent commentary by Jeremy ( who in my humble personal opinion , is the unquestioned authority wrt the "clinical " neurophysiology of CTS in the UK if not in the world ) , here is a direct link to the audio.
Wanted dead or alive.!
Probably an unknown and to many, a relic now but does anyone know of or have a surplus Medelec Mistral headbox laying around in a junk room?
Dear Friends and Colleagues
I run this website for the love of our specialty and a passion for IT, at some cost in both time and quids. I have avoided commercial sponsorship and I would not dream of taking money for it personally.
My department's new Lead Clinical Physiologist, Sandra Chinyere, has entered us for a charity run in aid of Epilepsy Action. I would be really grateful if you could express your appreciation for this site by contributing at the fund raising page that Sandra has set up:
I have completed a series of mini upgrades. The site should be stable now. Please let me know of any issues!
Adrian Fowle (Editor)
I am going to introduce a security upgrade soon. This afternoon I performed some preparatory work, moving the site to another server. I am sorry it was down longer than I expected, and I think I cut some users off.
Apologies for any inconvenience

Molly Watt is a plucky and engaging 19yr old with Usher syndrome. I got to know her through her parents who run a charity for Usher syndrome and my interest was aroused by their idea for a "Kindle bank" and by Molly's artwork. Usher syndrome causes both deafness and blindness and my department sometimes sees patients who are thought to have it to look for retinitis pigmentosa.
