Overview
Neurological exam and neuroanatomical localization

This course focuses on the principles of the neurological examination and aims to refresh knowledge of the relevant fundamentals of neuroanatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the central and peripheral nervous system. The morning sessions will cover principles of lesion localization of all relevant areas within the nervous system as well as lectures/presentations on most relevant associated clinical problems such as tail, anal and bladder dysfunction, behaviour/mental status abnormalities, visual abnormalities, paresis/paralysis, and episodic weakness. The practical afternoon sessions are structured as problem solved teaching and case-based oriented learning. By means of video cases the attendants can train to define the neuroanatomical lesion localization and learn about common neurological diseases seen in private practice.
