I read of a skull cap being used to monitor brainwaves in epileptics in place
of some traditional invasive sensors. I wondered if the same technology could
be used to monitor nerve responses from lower leg to brain where a stimulator
pulse would be applied to the foot and a monitor would look for break of
transmission due to a nerve pinch.
