Register here on our brand new sign-up form for 2022! https://forms.gle/v7dFGmYxxhQhY4KN7
This will be the third webinar of the ‘Neurology Made Easy’ series, where we will aim to employ an approach to clinically assess a patient with reduced cognition. We will then discuss the various aetiologies, including the different types of dementia and the appropriate management plans for each disease. Finally, we will explore the various higher cortical functions and what we would expect to see when the different cerebral regions are affected. Get ready to tour this fascinating organ and try to understand what is going wrong and what we can do about it!
