Clinical Neuroanatomy

Course begins May 11, 2015 (30 CE Credits) - Registration Coming Soon

The goal of this 15-week course is to provide students with a working knowledge of the basic neuroanatomic structures of the central nervous system including the motor system, somatosensory system, cranial nerves, cerebellum, basal ganglia, limbic structures, ventricles, meninges, and the vascular supply of the brain. After each major system, structure, or anatomical pathway is presented, the consequences of damage to that system will be presented. These are referred to as “Key Clinical Concepts” in your textbook and throughout these modules. Furthermore, clinical cases will be presented to help solidify the anatomical facts. In this fashion, the neuroanatomical details will take on clinical relevance, and thus a deeper appreciation of how the central nervous system operates will hopefully be attained.

Neuropsychology of Epilepsy and Epilepsy Surgery 

Course begins May 11, 2015 (16 CE Credits) - Registration Coming Soon

This 8-week course will systematically review the major seizure disorders and syndromes. Students will learn how diagnostic tests, such as EEG and structural neuroimaging, are used in epilepsy evaluations. In addition, leading treatment options, including pharmacologic therapies and surgery, will be reviewed. Special emphasis will be placed on the known cognitive and behavioral consequences of specific epilepsy syndromes and antiepileptic drugs. Discussion of the role of neuropsychological assessment in epilepsy diagnosis and treatment will include pre  and post surgical cognitive evaluation, cortical stimulation mapping, functional neuroimaging, and the intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) procedure. The cognitive and psychiatric disorders in epilepsy (including psychogenic nonepileptic seizures) will be considered.
