Hi Anon,

Electromyography (EMG) measures and records the electrical activity of a muscle. The test can record a muscle's electrical activity at rest or during a muscle contraction.

An EMG is often done with nerve conduction studies. These studies can analyze the electrical activity in your nerves.

Hope this helps,

Rosa
