Physicians, even when not specialized in epilepsy, have to face new-onset potentially rare, complex or drug-resistant epilepsies. EEG and Video-EEG (VEEG) are always the first diagnostic tools with history acquisition and clinical examination.

Analysis of the EEG and VEEG recordings guide both the prescription of other diagnostic investigations (neuroimaging, genetic screening) and the first treatment choices. Follow-up and treatment strategies also highly depend upon EEG and VEEG. 

These courses on interactive interpretation of EEG and VEEG patterns is developed specifically for child neurologists, neurophysiologists and pediatricians caring for children with epilepsy.

The 2021 course includes training modules covering different aspects of the electroencephalography in generalized epilepsy and reflex epilepsy. All aspects of surface interictal and ictal EEG will be covered, including recognition of basic rhythms, morphological and clinical significance of interictal epileptiform abnormalities and syndrome-specific EEG patterns.
