An EEG test will check whether you have seizures or not. The electrodes are placed in the scalp and these will be attached to the machine. It’s a great option to check brain activity.
Through EMG the nerve and muscle communication is better checked. The electrodes will be put on the skin or the needle passes through the muscle.
