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
This book covers
the following topics: The Nervous Functions, The Neuron, The Reflex Circuits,
The General Physiology of the Nervous System, General Anatomy and Subdivision of
the Nervous System, Spinal Cord and Its Nerves, Medulla Oblongata and
Cerebellum, The Cerebrum, General Somatic Systems of Conduction Paths, Auditory
Apparatus, Sympathetic Nervous System, Structure of the Cerebral Cortex,
Functions of the Cerebral Cortex.
This is a
list of major and frequently observed neurological disorders, symptoms, signs
and syndromes. There is disagreement over the definitions and criteria used to
delineate various disorders and whether some of these conditions should be
classified as mental disorders or in other ways.

of the brain, AIDS and the Nervous system, Brain Tumors, Cerebral Palsy,

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.
