Volume Conduction

Show Summary Details


This chapter reviews the principles of volume conduction as applied to the potentials recorded in clinical neurophysiologic studies. Knowledge of these principles is necessary for proper interpretation of EEG, EMG, NCS, SEP, VEP, and BAEP recordings in order to extract information concerning the function and location of the neural structures that generate the recorded activity or waveforms.
