Unit of study_

Basic Sciences in Clinical Neurophysiology - CLNP5001

Year - 2018

This unit of study provides the core anatomical, physiological and electrical 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. The methods by which these electrical signals are generated, recorded, processed and presented for interpretation are studied. The relevant aspects of neurology and physiology will be presented as well as the role of clinical neurophysiology in the diagnosis of disease.

Online lectures, webinars and/or discussion forums

Online quizzes (20%); video and written short answer questions (30%); participation in generation and peer review of assessment items (10%); online exam (40%).
