Learning objectives
The course proposes to:
- Acquire, deepen the basic preparation necessary to understand the main pathogenetic mechanisms of neurological diseases, acquire the fundamental concepts to understand the complexity of the neurological clinic and of the most modern investigation techniques.
- To examine the most recent acquisitions of scientific research in the field of dysfunctions and neurological diseases.
- Deepen the constitutive elements of the various techniques of functional investigation of the central and peripheral nervous system, in harmony with the experience of professionalizing training.
- Acquire a basic preparation that allows students to learn the characteristics and functioning of biomedical instruments and the bases for operating safely in the workplace.
