CLNP5001: Basic Sciences in Clinical Neurophysiology

This unit of study provides the core anatomical, physiological and technical knowledge required for the practice of clinical neurophysiology. In order to obtain and interpret information regarding the function of the neural systems, clinicians must be able to accurately record and quantify electrical signals from a myriad of neurological structures. This unit describes the methods by which these electrical signals are generated, recorded, processed and presented for interpretation. It also examines the neurological systems and processes responsible for signal generation, and introduces the role of clinical neurophysiology in diagnosis of systemic disease.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. describe the neurological systems and processes involved in signal generation
  • LO2. explain how neurological systems and processes general electrical signals
