Topic

Through interactive discussion of neurological cases, the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of specific neurological problems will be studied. History, symptoms, and test results will be analysed, based on previous studies in neurophysiology, neuropathology and radiology. Plenty of pictures, videos and some bed-side patient-demonstration will be included.
A symptom-oriented approach will be used (e.g. differential diagnosis of ataxias, spasticity), and diagnostic protocols will be discussed. A special attention will be given to rare and genetic diseases.
