C22 - Resident Basic Science I: Neuropathology

Event Time: Saturday May 4, 2019 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Topic(s): Research Methodology, Education, and History, Academic, Advanced Practice Provider
Director(s): J. Clay Goodman MD, FAAN
Description: Neuropathology is a rapidly and continuously evolving discipline encompassing basic, translational, and clinical neuroscience. A thorough understanding of the basics of neuropathology permits much deeper insight into mechanisms and manifestations of neurologic disease and provides a basis for more complete understanding of neuroimaging and laboratory studies. Faculty will provide a fast-paced, visually oriented overview of central nervous system neuropathology including tumors, demyelinating diseases, infections, cerebrovascular disease, toxic/metabolic conditions, neurotrauma, and neurodegenerative disease. The images shown during the program will be contained in the slide and written syllabi which will also contain substantial supplementary material. This program complements Resident Basic Science II: Neuropharmacology and Resident Basic Science III: Neuroanatomy: All the Lesions, but covers independent topics.
