Neuropathology refers to the study 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; and the basic physiology of the nervous system, with especial emphasis on the basics of membrane potentials, receptors, neurotransmitters, and the neuromuscular junction.

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 and knowledgeable about the pathophysiologies of the most prevalent neurological conditions in their area of work. This will allow a clinician to understand the clinical manifestations of these disorders and increase the diagnostic yield of the physical examination.
