Unravelling the Nervous System: Cerebral Disorders - Part 2
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. We will go through a number of neurodegenerative disorders affecting the cerebrum, cerebellum and motor neurons in detail.
The course primarily deals with a number of academically and clinically important cerebral neurodegenerative 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.
The course will begin with some very important Dementing disorders, that are those disorders presenting with dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia, and many more. These disorders will be discussed over a few modules. This will be followed by detailed modules on the Movement Disorders including both Hypokinetic and Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders. Motor Neuron Disease and Ataxic Disorders will then be discussed separately and in elaborate details.
