NDT 125 Introduction to Neurodiagnostic Technology* (4 Hours)
Prerequisites : Admission to the Neurodiagnostic Program.
This course provides an introduction to Neurodiagnostic Technology (NDT) including history, concepts, techniques, and instruments used in recording brain activity. Students will engage in a variety of learning activities to explore the Neurodiagnostic career field and establish foundational concepts used in later courses. In the lab, students will receive hands- on experience using the internationally recognized method to describe the location of scalp electrodes (International 10-20 System). Emphasis will be placed on ensuring electrical safety, electrode application, patient interaction, developing an accurate patient history, careful handling of the patient, reviewing normal electroencephalographic (EEG) activity, identifying normal variants and artifacts. The course will use a blended approach that ties the classroom concepts to performing an EEG in the lab.
