Brain Stem

by Craig Canby, PhD

The brain stem is a vitally important structure, as it is responsible for functions like breathing, consciousness, and blood pressure regulation. A variety of clinical problems can affect the brain stem, including autoimmune disease, vascular disease, and rare disorders such as central pontine myelinolysis (from rapid correction of hyponatremia). With a thorough knowledge of anatomy and associated functionality, the astute clinician can localize brain stem pathology based on clinical symptoms. This course addresses the nuclei, tracts, and functions of the brain stem.

Brain Structures
By Deborah H. on 04. September 2021 for Brain Stem

It is the best class on brain structures I've had to date. However, what this and all the other reviews lack is better terms to more deliberately, precisely and succinctly REMIND the students of where each structure is and it's function EACH TIME it is discussed. The brain has ALOT of structures and respective functions that need to be understood and memorized. So that type of repetition would just be really helpful.

Excelent teaching
