    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    For students coming from the three-year degree course of "Neurophysiopathology techniques" (currently not active at the University of Genoa) the course aims to consolidate knowledge already learned. For students from other three-year degree courses, the course aims to learn what the main methods of neurophysiological study consist of, with particular reference to learning the technique, basic knowledge of equipment and their correct maintenance, execution of diagnostic tests, clinical indications, logistical-organizational aspects and uses in the field of scientific research.

    TEACHING METHODS

    Lectures and theoretical-practical demonstration in the laboratory or in the classroom. Lessons can be held remotely if necessary based on current pandemic conditions.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Techniques for studying the peripheral nervous system (electroneurography, electromyography, complementary role of nerve and muscle ultrasound).
    Central nervous system study techniques (evoked potentials, event-related responses, electroencephalography, quantitative electroencephalography and mapping, integration with neuroimaging data).
    Theoretical basis underlying the EEG signal in physiology and pathology.
    Principles of quantification of the EEG signal. EEG mapping.
    Theoretical-practical demonstration of the treated techniques.
