Course module: Clinical Neuroscience

Clinical neuroscience module “C”: The human brain in health and disease

Organizer: Bogdan Draganski




The course includes a complete description of the healthy and diseased brain. Discussions will cover neuroanatomy, physiology, pathology, and plasticity aspects of each topic listed here after. Students can also benefit from participation in the clinical case presentations at the neurology service of the CHUV on Wednesday mornings. Upon successful completion of the course, students will have developed a broad understanding of normal brain functions and disorders of the central nervous system.

Please note that the course module "C" is interwined with the module "I" (Modern Neuroimaging Methods). The two modules can be taken together, but also separately.

Course location: CHUV, Mont Paisible 16 - salle 05_565
Clinical case discussions: Auditorium Charlotte Olivier in the CHUV main building
