Clinical Neurophysiology Moffitt-Long Hospital - Catherine Lomen-Hoerth, M.D., Ph.D.
This one- or two-year position is aimed at providing a broad education in the clinical, electrodiagnostic, and pathophysiological aspects of neuromuscular diseases. It also provides broad coverage of clinical neurophysiology so that fellows are eligible for examination by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology for added qualifications in clinical neurophysiology, as well as by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. There is exposure to a wide variety of neuromuscular diseases and to the most advanced neurophysiological techniques for the evaluation of neuromuscular disorders.
Ongoing research is directed at therapy of ALS by various neurotrophic factors, clarifying the clinical utility of motor unit number estimation, and evaluation of long loop reflexes.
