Neurology is the medical field that studies the various diseases affecting the nervous system.

Neurology consists of numerous pathologies including vascular diseases, neoplastic diseases, infectious diseases or metabolic nervous system afflictions. The neurologist takes care of specific conditions such as degenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), certain hereditary diseases, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, headaches like migraines, neuralgia, attention disorders, etc. The neurologist may be called upon to treat neuromuscular pathologies such as polyneuropathies, focal neuropathies, gravis myasthenia as well as muscular diseases.

ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY

Electroencephalogram
Electroencephalography is a cerebral exploratory method which measures the electrical activity of the brain with electrodes placed on the scalp. The EEG is an indolent (painless) and noninvasive test that provides information on brain activity for diagnostic purposes.

Electromyogram
The electromyogram is a test used to record the electrical activity of a muscle or nerve. The test consists of two parts: examination of nerve conductions and the examination of muscular activity evaluated with the help of a needle partially inserted in the muscle.

Evoked potentials
The evoked potential is an electric cerebral activity following a stimulation of sense organs (visual, auditory, touch). These potentials are collected using surface electrodes. This technical procedure is harmless and with very little discomfort.

Neuropsychology
Neuropsychological services are offered at Neuro Rive-Sud Clinic for patients 16 years and older. Diagnostic evaluations, aptitude tests, expertise and coaching for various problems (age-related memory losses, degenerative diseases (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis), attention disorders, autism spectrum disorders, learning problems, craniocerebral traumas and other neurological disorders.

Those services are not covered by the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec but most of private and group insurances cover part of them. Receipts for income tax purposes are available.

RESEARCH AND TRAINING

Clinical research is a field in development since the therapeutic approaches are increasing and treatments for pathologies that were without solutions are now surfacing. Certain neurologists from the clinic are combining clinical practice and research and play an important role in medical training at university hospitals as well as by participating in continuing medical training activities. The clinic regularly welcomes medical students and residents.
