What do clinical neurophysiology scientists and technologists do?
Scientists and technologists undertake specialised tests to ascertain the health and function of the central and peripheral nervous system. The information gathered is used to diagnose, treat and monitor neurological conditions. Scientists and technologists do not give results or make treatment decisions.
Many scientists work in hospitals in outpatient clinics or wards or attending critical areas such as intensive care and theatre. Other work settings include working in private neurology clinics or in multidisciplinary environments.
Depending on their work areas scientists undertaken tests on all age groups from newborns to the elderly.
