CODE 67126 ACADEMIC YEAR 2022/2023 CREDITS 3 cfu anno 2 8747 (LM-67) - GENOVA SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR MED/26 LANGUAGE Italian TEACHING LOCATION GENOVA SEMESTER 1° Semester MODULES Questo insegnamento è un modulo di: PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR NEUROLOGICAL AND PSYCHIATRIC PATIENTS TEACHING MATERIALS AULAWEB OVERVIEW The student must learn the main anatomic and physiologic aspects of the Central Nervous system (CNS) and of the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) as well as the more important physio-pathological modification in case of neurologic diseases AIMS AND CONTENT AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES The student will know the main functions of the CNS and PNS and will acquire notions on the most prevalent neurological diseases. He will therefore have basic notions of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system and know the main pathological pictures related to the involvement of the cortico-spinal, cortico-bulbar, extra-pyramidal, sensitive, cerebellar, neuromuscular systems. Students will learn the essential aspects of the main neurological diseases (cerebrovascular diseases, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, extra-pyramidal syndromes, dementias, brain tumors, head trauma, neuromuscular diseases), in order to be aware of them when, during their work activities, they will treat subjects affected by such pathologies. TEACHING METHODS The program will be based on frontal lessons with presentation of videos of emblematic disease cases. SYLLABUS/CONTENT Summary of essential notions of Anatomy and Physiology of the Nervous System: Motor function Sensitivity Motor coordination Cranial nerves Cognitive functions Main neurological diseases: Cerebrovascular diseases Multiple sclerosis Pathological involuntary movements Parkinsonian syndromes and Parkinson's disease Dementia Epilepsy Migraine Brain Tumors Traumatic Brain injury Neuromuscular diseases RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY We suggest the use of the handbook: Neurologia di Fazio-Loeb (SEU) or “Neurologia” (Author J. Cambier, Ed. Masson). The teachers provide lesson slides as pdf files.
