Electromyography (EMG), Electroencephalography (EEG), and Neurophysiology in Clinical Practice (More Info)
Description: This course is designed as a review of basic concepts of nerve conduction studies, needle EMG, EEG, evoked potentials, intraoperative monitoring, and autonomic and sleep studies. Techniques, interpretation, and the electrodiagnostic approaches to clinical disorders will be emphasized. The focus is on clinical correlation of various neurophysiologic tests used for the evaluation of patients with peripheral nerve and neuromuscular disorders, epilepsy, and sleep disorders. The program format includes lectures, practical demonstrations, videos, group discussions and workshops, for optimal learning. Participants will have the opportunity to observe EMG techniques on normal subjects in the laboratory, and directly interact with the faculty during these workshops. An electronic syllabus will be provided to participants. Presentations will be made by members of the staff of Mayo Clinic and faculty of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine from the Departments of Neurology in Jacksonville, Florida, Rochester, Minnesota, and Scottsdale, Arizona.
