This unit introduces students to the tools used in the assessment and diagnosis of neurological dysfunction in humans focusing on neurophysiological, neuroimaging and neuropsychiatric diagnostic procedures including clinical interviews and standardised self-report scales. Interpretation of clinical measurements and how these relate to pathophysiology will be discussed. Topics covered will include magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography, sensory evoked potentials and nerve conduction studies, as well as diagnostic behavioural criteria for the presence of disorder, the validity and reliability of structured clinical interviews and standardised scales, and procedures for forming diagnoses and planning interventions. Some treatment models will be discussed.
