The course will pursue a patient-oriented approach in defining the anatomy and physiology of neurocognitive functions.
I will emphasize the clinical-anatomy correlations of neurocognitive dysfunctions as well as of cranial nerve disorders.
I aim at providing students with clues to the physiopathology of major neurological disorders which they will encounter in their future.
