C202 - Higher Cortical Visual Disorders: Case-based Review

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology, Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-otology
Director(s): Sashank Prasad MD
Description: This course will review important neurologic disorders of higher visual processing. The diagnosis of these fascinating conditions can be challenging and is often delayed. In these patients, routine evaluations of visual function may not readily yield a diagnosis; it is important to conduct a refined examination of visual functions in order to correctly localize and identify the problem. After reviewing the organization of visual processing networks in the brain, faculty will illustrate specific disorders by using videos that depict patients describing their symptoms followed by focused examinations highlighting their visual processing abnormalities. Topics covered will include Anton syndrome, apperceptive visual agnosia, hemi-achromatopsia, alexia without agraphia, Riddoch syndrome, Balint syndrome, prosopagnosia, Charles Bonnet syndrome, and Lhermitte’s peduncular hallucinosis. Discussion of each syndrome, its localization, and recent scientific insights from modern investigations of these disorders will follow each case.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to gain familiarity with the diagnosis, localization, management, and neuroscientific understanding of disorders of visual processing.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
