This course will expand on adult terminology as it relates to the Neurodiagnostic Technology (NDT) field.

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.
