Summary

The field of applied electrophysiology in psychiatry for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes remains in its formative stages. While the scope of the field is rather large, the bona fide clinical applications are limited. A definition of the field, its scope and practice guidelines is needed for the clinical discipline to develop properly. The chapter discusses currently available certification venues for Clinical Neurophysiology along with limitations of each venue and discusses the need for developing training guidelines and certification processes specific to Neuropsychiatric Electrophysiology.
