A needle is inserted into the muscle and electrical activity when nerves are stimulated is observed. The electrical activity is displayed on an oscilloscope. This test assists the doctor to differentiate primary muscle conditions from muscle weakness due to neurological disorders.

Electrodes are placed on the skin to stimulate the nerves with mild electrical impulses. This test is used to diagnose and evaluate nerve destruction and damage.
