NSU HPD Catalog 2021-2022

262 College of Optometry publication is required for credit. Projects may take the form of a literature review, the preparation of a research proposal, or original research. (36-0-3) CVR 8194—Independent Study IV in Optics and Visual Optics The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of a personal interest with close supervision and guidance. A tangible outcome such as a proposal or paper suitable for publication is required for credit. Projects may take the form of a literature review, the preparation of a research proposal, or original research. (36-0-3) Public Health Courses CVR 8291—Independent Study I in Public Health This course allows individual study in a specific topic proposed by the student and approved by the student’s faculty adviser. Projects may take the formof literature reviews, preparation of research proposals, or original research. Weekly conferences with the faculty adviser are required. The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. A tangible outcome and goal for this course should be the preparation of a proposal suitable for the NSU Institutional Review Board (IRB) to review. (36-0-3) CVR 8292—Independent Study II in Public Health This course allows individual study in a specific topic proposed by the student and approved by the student’s faculty adviser. IRB-approved projects may take the form of literature reviews or retrospective or prospective research proposals. Weekly conferences with the faculty adviser are required to report on the recruitment of subjects and data collection. (36-0-3) CVR 8293—Independent Study III in Public Health This is a continuation of the individual study in a specific topic proposed by the student and approved by the student’s faculty adviser. Weekly conferences with the faculty adviser are required. Data analysis and interpretation of findings occur during this portion of the independent study series. Consideration of recruiting more subjects to add differing statistical analyses and or design modifications may be considered. Students are encouraged to submit preliminary findings for peer review and presentation at one of the national meetings (AAO, ARVO, or AOA). (36-0-3) CVR 8294—Independent Study IV in Public Health This course completes the individual research thesis project in the specific topic proposed by the student and approved by the student’s faculty adviser. Weekly conferences with the faculty adviser are required. The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to finish the thesis following the M.S. Clinical Vision Research thesis guidelines. A tangible outcome is a completed draft of the thesis. (36-0-3) Electrodiagnostic Courses CVR 8310—Fundamentals of Electrodiagnostic Instrumentation and Methods This course has three major sections. In the first section, it covers the basic principles of electrodiagnostic studies and the physiologic basis for the electrical activity of nerve and muscles cells. In the second, it introduces the proper recording andmeasurement techniques. Instrumentation and strategies to reduce noise and artifact will also be discussed. In the last section, various disease processes affecting the peripheral neuromuscular system will be reviewed. (36-0-3) CVR 8320—Advanced Topics in Clinical Electrodiagnostic This course is a continuation of CVR 8310. It covers more in-depth reading on electrooculography (EOG), multifocal visual evoked potential (mfVEP), multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG), and electroencephalogram (EEG). Students are expected to be able to process mfVEP and mfERG data with R or Matlab. (36-0-3) CVR 8391—Independent Study I in Clinical Electrodiagnostic Research Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., identifying electrophysiological markers associated with visual deficits). The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance.
