|MODULES||This unit is a module of:|
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
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.
The program will be based on frontal lessons with presentation of videos of emblematic disease cases.
Summary of essential notions of Anatomy and Physiology of the Nervous System:
Main neurological diseases:
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.
Office hours: For appointments, write to firstname.lastname@example.org
The lessons are provided in the first semester, starting in October
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Each teacher will evaluate the student on his part of program and will give his score; at the end of the test, the Coordinator will provide the weighted mean of the separated scores and give to the student the global score. The student may refuse the result. In this case, the student must repeat the test in another session. The coordinator inserts the questions and the scores on the electronic recording system as soon as possible.
The student must demonstrate a basic knowledge of Neurology and must be able to understand the normal and pathological function of the Nervous System. It is also important that the student demonstrates a correct and specific terminology.
