Epilepsy can affect various parts of your brain. Our EMU helps us track seizures as they happen and determine where in your brain they begin. This helps us decide which treatments are likely to be right for you.
You may spend up to nine days in our monitoring unit. There are some restrictions but you’re free to move around and go about your daily life in the unit. But with the help of an electroencephalogram (EEG), we monitor the electrical activity in your brain. This test involves placing electrodes on your scalp and is painless.
