Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Interpret the findings and clinical significance of abnormalities on electroencephalography (EEG) studies
- Evaluate reading skills of routine EEG, recognizing potentially confounding normal variants, artifacts and normal waveforms versus epileptiform activity
- Recognize and interpret the significance of electromyography (EMG) waveforms on needle EMG
- Develop a logical approach to the use of standard clinical electrophysiological techniques in the evaluation of common and uncommon neuromuscular disorders
- Develop an approach to the setting of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit
- Identify common treatments using botulinumtoxin in neurophysiology
