Module Objective: To provide a detailed overview of the generation and measurement of evoked potentials from the central nervous system, with special reference to auditory evoked potentials in paediatric and adult populations.

Module Content: This module will discuss the different types of evoked potentials from the central nervous system including somatosensory, visual and auditory evoked potentials. The different generators of auditory evoked potentials, the principles of its measurement and its use in clinical practice will be the main focus of this module.

Learning Outcomes: On successful completion of this module, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the principles of generation of evoked potentials in response to sensory stimuli including auditory stimuli
  • Critically appraise the evidence related to the different protocols for measurement of auditory evoked potentials and the variables affecting these measurements
  • Critically appraise evidence related to the clinical application of auditory evoked potentials in children and adults
  • Demonstrate the ability to interpret evoked potentials test results according to best practice guidelines
  • Develop an understanding of the use of late evoked potentials, including event related potentials, in clinical practice.

Assessment: Total Marks 100: Continuous Assessment 100 marks (1 x e-portfolio (100 marks)).  

Commencement : 2 days November 5th, 6th, 2021 Friday & Saturday.


• Candidates will hold either an undergraduate honours degree (NFQ level 8; minimum Second Class Honours, Grade 1) or a postgraduate degree, in any scientific or medical discipline, such as but not exclusively, Audiology, Anatomy, Biomedical Science, Engineering, Social Sciences, Speech and Language Therapy, Medicine, Nursing and Education *.

• In exceptional circumstances candidates without an honours degree may be recommended for entry to the programme after a review of their qualifications and experience by the programme lead. The admission of such candidates will be subject to the approval of the School of Clinical Therapies

• Applications will be reviewed on the basis of educational qualifications, relevant work experience and motivation.

*where modules are part of an existing programme and are to be offered as CPD Modules, the applicant will be expected to meet the entry requirements of the programme.
