This course will expand on adult terminology as it relates to the Neurodiagnostic Technology (NDT) field. Students will learn the maturation of the brain from adolescent through the geriatric patient, normal and abnormal activity, and electroencephalographic (EEG) variants and seizure disorders will be discussed. In the lab, students will apply concepts of electrode placement to the adult patient. A variety of learning activities will allow students to perform an EEG in the lab prior to performing an EEG in the clinical setting. Course instruction will occur using a blended approach that focuses on active engagement of the student in the classroom and simulated lab setting.
