Electroneurodiagnostics is the study and recording of electrical activity in the brain and nervous system. An electroneurodiagnostic (END) technologist uses an electroencephalograph (EEG) instrument to record electrical impulses transmitted by the brain and nervous system. These recordings assist physicians in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological problems—from headaches and dizziness to seizure disorders, strokes, degenerative brain diseases and sleep disorders.

Career opportunities: hospitals, outpatient clinics, sleep labs.
