What Can You Expect at 1st Canadian Paediatric SEEG Course?

Do you want to learn about stereo-EEG and get hands-on experience?Join us for this workshop. We will have exciting lectures by internationally renowned speakers and an experienced faculty that will support you in solving hand-on cases. The workshop also aims to bring together specialists from different training backgrounds and experience levels to increase out knowledge about pediatric stereo-EEG. Hurry-up and register, because spaces are limited and this will be a unique practical learning experience.

What is normal, what is not? This will be the question discussed in the scientific part of our course. You will learn about challenges and advantages of stereo EEG in children. Moreover will dedicate the second day to discussing stimulation in stereo-EEG studies.

Scientific lectures will be accompanied by a hands-on experience, which allows participants to solve SEEG cases similar to those provided in the international SEEG courses. Each case will be discussed in two phases (practical sessions).  In phase one participants  receive information from non-invasive investigations like MRI, PET, neuropsychology, seizure semiology and the LTM-EEG data of the patients. They will read the EEG, watch seizures and then will discuss possible implantations side and design their own implantation scheme. In phase 2 participants will get the chance to read the SEEG traces from the same patients and will develop a resection scheme.
