Learning outcomes of the course unit
Training objectives of the course
Neurology ¿ Providing students with knowledge for a correct interpretation of neurological signs and symptoms, especially involving cranial nerves, and with an understanding of the major groups of neurological disorders. For every single disorder of each group, specific information will be provided on epidemiological, clinical, pathophysiological, prognostic and therapeutic aspects.
Course learning results
Neurology ¿ Students will learn how to correctly interpret neurological signs and symptoms as either anatomically and functionally normal or pathological. They will also learn notions that will enable them to define syndromes related to pathological modifications of specific structures of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems (e.g., pyramidal syndrome, extrapyramidal syndrome, etc.). Finally, the course will enable students to get to know the major groups of neurological disorders (e.g., cerebrovascular diseases, infectious CNS diseases, etc.).
