The topics that were covered ranged from “GENERATORS OF THE ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAM,” presented by Dr. Alejandro Escalaya, to “QUANTITATIVE EEG,” led by Dr. Luis Carlos Mayor. Additionally, crucial aspects such as “THE EEG REPORT,” presented by Dr. Marlene Huamani, “EEG IN COMA,” with Dr. Clio Rubinos, and “FOCAL EPILEPSIES,” presented by Dr. Walter De la Cruz, were discussed. Issues of great relevance in “CLINICAL CASES” were directed by Dr. Jean Paul Vergara, and “PERIODIC AND PSEUDOPERIODIC PATTERNS” were analyzed thanks to the expertise of Dr. Elliot Barreto.

The symposium attracted a diverse group of participants, including physicians and residents from 11 different countries, including Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Panama, Peru, El Salvador, Chile, Ecuador, Venezuela, Guatemala, and Belize. Furthermore, an impressive 96.8% of participants who responded to the quality survey expressed their desire to participate in future EEG courses offered by Neurovirtual.
