Dr Lee is a Consultant Clinical Neurophysiologist, with a specialist interest in neuromuscular disorders, peripheral nerve diseases, and epilepsy. As a neurophysiology physician, she sees patients and performs and interprets investigations which record activity from the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. These include nerve conduction studies, electromyography (EMG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), evoked potentials (EP) and electroencephalography (EEG). These investigations are used to aid the diagnosis in various conditions affecting these parts of the nervous system.
