Diagnostic Electroencephalography - CLNP5002

Year - 2020

Electroencephalography (EEG) forms the basis of multiple neurophysiological techniques and is a powerful tool in its own right. This unit will introduce the standardised systems and nomenclature for EEG recordings, examine the characteristics of normal recordings and, using a case based approach illustrate the pathological changes associated with intracranial lesions, systemic disease and critical illness. The utility of EEG in the diagnosis of seizure disorders will be examined in detail.

Online learning, discussion forums, 2 day face-to-face workshop (compulsory)

Online quizzes (10%); 2x short essays (30%); participation in generation and peer review of assessment items (10%); clinical case discussions (10%); online exam (40%). Students must score a minimum of 50% in the exam to pass the unit of study.
