This course explores the neurophysiological basis of the EEG. Learners are presented with information about neurons and how these specialized cells generate brain waves. Normal EEG patterns found in the waking and sleep states are identified. Assignments focus on descriptive EEG terms, waveform descriptions, and features that promote the visual analysis of EEG. Information related to medication effects on the EEG is also provided. Normal EEG variants are a key component to this course, such as POSTS, Mu, Lambda, Phantom Spike & Wave, etc. Learners will be assigned work that will enhance their pattern recognition skills.
