Slides are good to review the course material after you have study your course textbook Slides are a good indicator of the relative importance of lecture topics (see slide # per topic Group slides by titles when using them to review course material. Match lectures and text. Lectures 1-2: Introduction to Pathophysiology (2) Lectures 3-4: Mechanisms of Self-Defense and Stress (2) Lectures 5-8: Endocrine and Nervous System Dysfunctions (4) Lecture 9: Alterations of Skeletal Muscle Function (1) REVIEW AND TEST #1 Lectures 12-18: Cardiovascular, Respiratory and Renal Dysfunctions (7) REVIEW AND TEST #2 Lectures 21-24: Alterations of Digestive Function and Intermediary Metabolism (4) Lectures 25-26: Alterations of the Reproductive System (2) REVIEW AND TEST #3 Basic Neurologic Concepts Structure / Function overview, cells, signal, synapsis, sensory and motor functions, ANS, repair Clinical and anatomical correlations (e.g.) pain, fever, respiratory rhythm, pupils, reflexes, dysphasia, Alzheimer, hypertension CNS disorders trauma, degenerative, cerebrovascular, infec- tion / inflammation The nervous system is divided into a CNS (contained within the brain and the spinal cord) and the PNS which is made of cranial and spinal nerves (somatic, afferent and efferent) and of the ANS (visceral, sympathetic and parasympathetic units). Their cells involved are neurons (which receive and transmit signals) and glia cells (which provide supportive functions). Action and local potentials are electrical representations of ion movement across the neurolemma. Between cells, signals are conveyed through chemical synapses (neurotransmitters) or gap junctions (electrical synapses). Sensory signals are carried through afferent pathways to local or central integrators and motor signals are carried through efferent pathways to local or peripheral effectors. Control is exerted through links between effects and sensory receptors (negative feedback control mechanisms). Some basic concepts related to the nervous system Page 2 Basic Neurologic Concepts Neuron, neuronal transmission, synaptic cleft, glia, astrocytes, oligo- dendrocytes, microglia, ependymal cells.
