CLNP5004: Advanced Electroencephalography

2024 unit information

This unit covers advanced aspects of diagnostic electroencephalography, including the specific technical requirements for continuous video EEG monitoring, seizure recognition during invasive EEG monitoring, current techniques in cortical mapping of seizures and their utility in tailored cortical resection.

Code CLNP5004
Academic unit Clinical Neurophysiology
Credit points 6
CLNP5001 and CLNP5002
Assumed knowledge:

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

  • LO1. demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the EEG recording system and the effects of key components on performance of the different types of long-term EEG monitoring
  • LO2. identify various drugs and medications used on patients with epilepsy and their effects on EEG recording
  • LO3. identify and evaluate EEG patterns encountered in ICU and ED department
  • LO4. demonstrate a detailed knowledge of seizure induction methods, appropriate testing of patients during an event for both diagnostic and surgical evaluation of the neurological disorders in EMU
  • LO5. demonstrate how inter-ictal and ictal EEG patterns are used to localise and lateralise the electro-clinical semiology in pre-surgical evaluation of focal/multifocal tumours and epilepsies
  • LO6. recognize the common focal epilepsies studied with invasive EEG monitoring using strips, grids and stereotactic depth electrodes and discuss indications for each technique and their benefits and pitfalls in localisation of seizure source
  • LO7. identify cortical zones and explain the concepts of cortical mapping of seizure focus, and utility of advanced EEG features high frequency oscillations
  • LO8. understand the concept of cortical mapping of eloquent area with electrical cortical stimulation and discuss benefits and limitations between subdural grids and stereotactic depth electrodes.
