The physical examination of the nervous system is a fundamental part of the standard physical exam and relies on the previous comprehension of the anatomy and physiology of the central nervous system. Mainly, this exam consists of inspection by the physician while asking the patient to perform a series of tests.
The assessment focuses on the evaluation of proper functioning of the cranial nerves, motor processing, sensory processing, cortical sensation, and higher cortical processing. The key is to identify signs of abnormal functioning, such as limb ataxia, gait ataxia, imbalance, tremor, and signs of hemispheric stroke or delirium.
Easy to understand and I find it fun to learn new things with Dr Stephen

These lectures by Stephen Holt are amazing for revision . I found these very useful to quickly revise the medical subjects as he teaches loads of fascinating medical findings that are relevant to the examination.
The videos are professionally done. Dr Stephen Holt knows what he’s talking about and I am in awe of his grasp of the examination of all systems. It seems so natural and easy on the eyes. Videos are high definition and the notes on the screen make this like a perfect ice cream sundae. There’s no YouTube video that comes close. These videos prepared me for my Canadian OSCE exam.
