Methods and techniques

EEG (including video EEG)

Intra-operative monitoring of nerve function

Neuroimiaging (CT, PET-CT, MRI, DAT-SPECT)

Nerve conduction, electromyography, threshold tracking

Testing of autonome nervous system (sudomotor and cardiovascular)

Single fibre electromyography

Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) (von Frey Filaments, Termorollers, Termotest MSA, Electric Pressure Algometer, Force Dial FDK 20, Biothesiometer, Rydel-Seiffer tuning fork, "The Pin Prick")

Skin biopsy (quantification of epidermal nerve fibre density)

Confocal microscopy of cornea (Quantification of nerve fibres)

Grib strength (Jamar)

Measures of function (e.g. six spot step test, timed 25-foot walk, 9 hole peg test)
