Book Club/ Epilepsy Lecture Series

Schedule and Venue

  • Every Tuesday at noon in J5/255 or MFCB 7114 (2nd Tuesday of each month)


The weekly neurophysiology didactics consists of a book club led by a neurophysiologist with an expertise in either EMG/NCS, EEG, IOM, or sleep. The textbooks reviewed are Clinical Neurophysiology by Rubin and Daube as well as Current Practice of Clinical Electroencephalopathy. The goals of the book studies are to understand neurophysiology from a practical technical aspect to higher-level interpretation to incorporation into clinical neurologic diseases. Intraoperative monitoring, evoked potentials, and sleep studies will be covered in this didactic series. Book club cover 1 to 2 chapters every week, while also incorporating the following lectures by experts in their field. This lecture series below will be the second Tuesday of every month and will also include the residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows if there are any.
