PL3288
Lab in Electroencephalography (EEG)

Ongoing electrical changes in the human brain can be measured non‐invasively using electrodes placed on the scalp. This technique, called electroencephalography (EEG), allows the neural and cognitive basis of information processing to be examined, and is also used clinically for diagnosis of neurological dysfunction. In this module, students will develop a basic understanding of the neurophysiology underlying EEG and how EEG can be used as a tool to investigate the brain. To this end, students will learn to acquire, analyse, and interpret EEG data in order to answer questions about the biological basis of behavior.
