Name of the Lecture:

Injury in central nervous system and cerebrovascular diseases

Required Prior Knowledge:

  • Basic vascular anatomy of CNS

  • Basic gross anatomy of cerebral hemispheres and cerebellum

  • Basic histology of cell types in CNS

  • Basic physiology of cerebrospinal fluid

  • Basic physiology of blood brain barrier

Aim of the Lecture:

  • To teach basic injury response of CNS to various lesions

  • To teach pathology of fluid flows in CNS and pathologies related to vascular lesions

Goals of the lecture:

The students will learn:

  • The basic reaction patterns to injury in CNS and how it differs from those of other organ systems

  • Fluid imbalances in CNS

  • Pathologies of flow of cerebrospinal fluid

  • Cerebrovascular diseases

  • The pathogenetic mechanisms of these diseases, their macroscopic and microscopic features

The students will compare the morpgologic and pathophysiologic features with clinical presentations.
