Electrophysiology Laboratory

This laboratory is a dedicated unit towards different aspects of electrophysiology and forms an essential part of neurological workup. This started years ago with basic EEG and EMG, and now it consists of a wide range of investigations which include

 

  1. Electroencephalography (EEG)
  2. Video EEG
  3. Portable EEG for bedside/NICU recording
  4. Electromyography (EMG)
  5. Nerve conduction studies (NCS)
  6. Repetitive nerve stimulation (RNST)
  7. Visual evoked potential (VEP), Brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER), Somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP)
  8. Polysomnography ( for sleep study)
  9. Autonomic function testing

 

Neurogenetics Laboratory

It’s a 1st govt. set up in Eastern India. It started BIN from the year of 2010. Diagnosis study of different neurological genetic disorder.Diagnosis, Research, Publication, Project works are done in this lab.Counseling of patients & their family who are suffering neurological disorder for their future planning is done here.With the spread of genetic studies across the globe, it was felt that a department cannot be complete without the support of genetics to complement the clinical and augment the investigational aspects of Neurology. Thus was conceived the idea which soon materialised into a dedicated Neurogenetics Laboratory. Today it is a fully functional unit which regularly perform genetic study on various neurological disorders which include

 

i) Hereditary Ataxia

  1. Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) comprehensive panel- SCA 1,2,3,6,7,8,12
  2. Friedreich Ataxia

 

ii) Movement Disorder

  1. Huntington Disease
  2. Dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA)

 

iii) Neuromuscular

  1. Myotonic Dystrophy
  2. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)/ Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD)
