From textbook to treatment, this course provides a translational approach to understanding the foundational neurobiological and clinical aspects of some of the most prevalent neurological disorders and diseases. Neurology concerning the cerebrovascular system (stroke), the functioning of the motoric system (Parkinson’s), and the degeneration of cognitive and behavioral functions (Alzheimer’s, dementia) are discussed in the classroom and illustrated in the clinical setting. The neurobiology of each of these disorders is explored from a biological and chemical perspective, complimented by a clinical understanding of symptomology and diagnosis. You learn the respective imaging methodology, physiology, brain anatomy, and research methods for each disease discussed, giving you a well-rounded understanding of each disorder.
