Clinical Neurology (release in progress)

Clinical Neurology (release in progress)

by Carlo Raj, MD, Brian Alverson, MD, Sharon Bord, MD u.a.

Neurology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study, diagnosis, and management of conditions affecting the nervous system. These include cerebrovascular conditions such as stroke and transient ischemic attacks, seizures and epilepsy, inherited and acquired neuromuscular diseases, central nervous system infections and tumors, disorders of balance, and — last but not least — headaches.

For optimal comprehension, the student needs to be familiar with the anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system, focusing on the individual functions of each structure; basic physiology of the nervous system, with especial emphasis on the basics of membrane potentials, receptors, neurotransmitters, and the neuromuscular junction; patterns of inheritance; and, most importantly, how to conduct a thorough neurological examination.

Neurological conditions tend to manifest as characteristic sets of signs and symptoms that can be attributed to the dysfunction of individual or multiple structures. Neurological disorders represent an important portion of the burden of disease worldwide, and its manifestations—ranging from behavioral changes to the inability to move at will—can be severely distressing to the patient and their loved ones.

A competent physician must be aware of the most prevalent neurological conditions in his or her area while being able to detect signs and symptoms attributed to neurologic deficit.
