Event Details

Course introduction:
Neuronal oscillations are critical for brain function. They serve many functions in healthy humans and are important for the diagnosis and treatment of epileptic seizures. This course reviews the basis of neuronal oscillations and their context in diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy patients and recent findings on the role of neuronal oscillations in the near-death phase and end-of-life cycle.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this seminar the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basis of neuronal oscillations
  • Understand how to diagnose epilepsy
  • Understand how to select and investigate patients for epilepsy surgery and review the surgical options for epilepsy
  • Review the neurophysiological significance of neuronal oscillations for near-death experiences and life recall
