An Introduction to Evoked Potentials modalities is followed by lectures on near-field vs far-field recording methods, stimulus types and characteristics, calibration, polarity, amplification (recording gain, display gain, sensitivity), and filters.

The averaging process will be explained in detail. You will learn how the analysis time, number of points, dwell time and sampling rate determine horizontal resolution and how to calculate each. Vertical resolution and the number of voltage levels expressed as bit capacity will be explained. You will gain an understanding of the signal-to-noise ratio and its effect on the resolution of the signal. You will gain a working knowledge of EP terminology.  The perfect class as an introduction to IOM as well.
