Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology (EEG)
Director(s): Selim Benbadis MD

This program complements C199: Clinical EEG II: Focal, Diffuse, and Epileptiform Abnormalities in Adults and C212: Clinical EEG III: Pediatric and Neonatal, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to distinguish normal pattern form abnormalities; avoid common pitfalls, such as misinterpretation of artifacts and normal variants; and generate quality reports.
