Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) & Electromyography (EMG)

The recording of the velocity and amplitude of the compound action potentials of the sensory and motor nerves. Multiple nerves can be tested; while most nerves are mixed sensory and motor nerves, recording from a muscle means that the entire response is motor, and recording from a digit means that the entire response is sensory.

Electromyography (EMG)

EMG is the recording of electrical activity from the muscles. A needle contains a small electrode that records the extracellular potentials from the muscle. Therefore, the EMG makes a statement about the motor axons, but does not assess the sensory axons.


NCS and EMG are partnered for evaluation of the patient, and the specific subtest routines are determined by the examiner, usually a physician specializing in neurology.
