Unravelling the Nervous System: Cerebral Disorders - Part 1
It was Sir Jay Holder, who once said, “The nervous system holds the key to the body’s incredible potential to heal itself.” This is clarified by Dr. Hahnemann himself in §16 of the Organon of Medicine, where he says, “… spirit-like alternative powers of the serviceable medicines acting upon our spirit-like vital force, which perceives them through the medium of the sentient faculty of the nerves everywhere present in the organism …” So, these two quotes must tell you the role played by the human nervous system in healing the sick. But, the human nervous system is not only important, it is also very complex. So, this course aims to unravel the nervous system – especially the disorders of the brain. Beginning with detailed discussion on some very important cerebral disorders, such as headache syndromes, epilepsy, sleep disorders, etc., we will go through the cerebrovascular disorders as well.
The course primarily deals with a number of academically and clinically important cerebral disorders. It discusses the disorders in detail including the aetiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnosis and management for each of them.
This course will help the learner make faster diagnosis and give correct advice to the patients and have a thorough knowledge of every disease.
- 2. Headache Syndromes Part 2 54 min
- 3. Epilepsy – Part 1 41 min
- 4. Epilepsy – Part 2 42 min
- 5. Vestibular Disorders 27 min
- 6. Disorders of Sleep 42 min
- 7. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 31 min
The course will begin with the very common and important Headache syndromes discussed over a few modules. Detailed modules on epilepsy, vestibular disorders, sleep disorders and chronic fatigue syndrome follows after that. Cerebrovascular disorders will then be discussed separately owing to the vastness of these topics. These modules will discuss stroke, intracranial haemorrhages, cerebral venous thrombosis and the vascular anomalies as well.
