The program consists of teaching sessions in the mornings, and sessions with gross neuropathology and histology (slide viewing and case discussions) in the afternoons. Topics covered are: general pathology of the central nervous system, muscle, nerve, tumours, neurodegenerative diseases, vascular pathology, infections of the CNS, human prion diseases, white matter diseases, metabolic diseases, developmental neuropathology and epilepsy.
