Evoked potentials

Tests that measure the brain's electrical response to stimulation of sensory organs (eyes or ears) or peripheral nerves (skin). These tests may help confirm the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

Examination of evoked potentials (EPs) is a simple and non-invasive method that is important in confirming clinical signs and symptoms as well as revealing silent lesions and multisystem involvement.
