note will introduce students to the major systems of the brain, which underlie
these abilities – focusing on sensory, motor and memory systems. It will start
with classical "textbook" concepts and methods in the field of Systems
Neuroscience, but will then emphasize contemporary approaches, concepts and

The object of
this book is to set forth in practical form, on the basis of the Case System,
certain fundamental facts regarding the symptomatology, diagnosis, treatment and pathological findings in the more
frequent disorders of the nervous system.
This note covers the following topics:
Meninge, Ventricles, Subarchnoid space and CSF, head injury, cells of the
nervous system, neural development, Ascending Somatosensory pathways, descending
motor pathways, autonomic nervous system, cerebellum, basal ganglia and related
disorders, spinal cord and spinal injury, brainstem and cranial nerves, the
Frontal lobes, The Parietal lobes, the temporal lobes: language areas of the
cortex, the memory system and dementia: CNS blood supply and stroke.
Recent medical advances have
improved the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of paraneoplastic
syndromes. These disorders arise from tumor secretion of hormones, peptides, or
cytokines or from immune cross-reactivity between malignant and normal tissues.
Paraneoplastic syndromes may affect diverse organ systems, most notably the
endocrine, neurologic, dermatologic, rheumatologic, and hematologic systems.
