During the practical sessions, you will complete a set of practical tasks to set up, use and interpret data generated from neurophysiological measurement equipment. Practical tasks will include nervous system dissection, brain structure and reflexes, EEG, sensory and motor experiments and an OSCE. The OSCE will have a pass/fail grade. A laboratory workbook is to be completed as the practical tasks are conducted.
A post practical quiz, available on Moodle, must be completed within 1 week of completion of the practical sessions. This quiz will require you to reflect on workbook entries and practical sessions conducted.
Please note: The practical sessions for this course are being run as a 2 day block. For on-campus students this is referred to as a practical block/session and for Mixed Mode students it is referred to as a Residential school. In effect, for this course they are the same thing and occur on the same dates and provide an opportunity for on campus and Mixed Mode students to meet each other.
