Credits: 2

This advanced-level course will focus on the complex neuropathology of classes of disorders and syndromes that affect the brain, including but not limited to cerebrovascular disease, cancers/tumor, autoimmune/infectious diseases, seizure disorders, etc. For each disorder/syndrome, basic principles, etiology, epidemiology, neuroimaging, progression/prognosis, and clinical implications will be reviewed.  Students will also utilize their knowledge of neuroanatomy and neuropsychological assessment to better understand how to identify, evaluate, and treat the variety of disorders/syndromes discussed and case examples will be used throughout to illustrate how these disorders/syndromes present in real life.
