Paediatric EMG
Dr Verity McClelland

Dr Verity McClelland is an academic Clinical Neurophysiologist with a background in Paediatrics.  She is particularly interested in sensorimotor physiology, the development of motor control and understanding the mechanisms underlying movement disorders in children.
She has recently been awarded an MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship, which she holds at the Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London. She also continues clinical work as an honorary Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology at Evelina London Children's Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. 
Her work is closely integrated with the Complex Movement Disorders Service at Evelina London Children's Hospital.  Her current research investigates sensory processing abnormalities in children with dystonia and dyskinetic cerebral palsy.  She uses EEG, EMG, Evoked potentials and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to delineate the physiological similarities and differences between different types of dystonia.  She is also interested in the potential use of neurophysiological tools to improve outcomes for these children, either by providing neurofeedback or as biomarkers to guide a more individualised approach to therapy.
