Electrophysiologic Generators in Clinical Neurophysiology

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter reviews the generators of electrophysiologic potentials in terms of basic cellular electrophysiology and the anatomical structures that generate electrophysiologic potentials of clinical interest. Knowledge of the generators of the potentials recorded in clinical neurophysiologic studies is helpful in understanding the characteristics and distribution of the recorded potentials and is the first step in correlating the alterations seen in disease states with the pathologic changes demonstrated in the underlying generators.
