Care for conditions affecting the brain and nervous system

Neurology at Anna Jaques Hospital

When you need care for nervous system problems, you want the best. At Anna Jaques Hospital, our neurologists have special training so they can investigate, diagnose and treat nervous system disorders.

The nervous system helps the brain communicate with the rest of the body. It includes the brain, spine and important nerves.

Diagnostic Neurology Tests

Diagnostic neurology is the scientific study of the nervous system. Anna Jaques uses several procedures to diagnose neurologic disorders or diseases. We offer these tests by appointment only.

Electroencephalogram (EEG) Test

An EEG test is a procedure that records the brain's continuous electrical activity using electrodes attached to the scalp.

Electro-Diagnostic Tests

Your neurologist may suggest that you undergo an electro-diagnostic test to help diagnose your neurological condition. We use electro-diagnostic tests to evaluate and diagnose disorders of the muscles and motor neurons.

During this type of test, your care team inserts electrodes into a muscle, or places the electrodes on the skin overlying a muscle or muscle group. They then use specialized equipment to record electrical activity and muscle response.
