Learning goals in this course

EEG

  • Exercise the insertion of electrode placement in the 3D -game 10-20 system
  • Know EEG tools.
  • Know the main features of the electrodes naming (brain areas).
  • Identify the eye closing / the eye opening reaction.
  • Identify the most common artifacts (ECG, pulse, muscle, alternating current, ocular motion)
  • Identifies the sleep phenomena on the EEG curve (slow eye moments,disappearance of alpha activity, vertex wave, spindels, k-complexes).
  • Understand the importance of provocations.
  • Understand the significance of the additional bipolar channels(EOG,ECG,EMG).

Neurography

  • Understand neoroanatomy
  • Understands the principles of motor and sensor measurement.
  • Know the concepts of latency, amplitude and averaging.
  • Know the sources of error (distance, temperature).
  • Know the most common measurable nerves.
  • Knows the most common injury type

Evoked potential

  • Recognize the most common evoked potentials.

Nocturnal polygraphy

  • Know about sleep disturbances and study indications.
  • Know what different sensors measure.
  • Can check the quality of the registration.
  • Understand the principle of sleep constraint (followed by scrambling).
