Semester 2

You will be introduced to the pathology of nervous system function, neural disease and neurodegenerative disorders. The module will specifically promote knowledge of the relationship between abnormal structure of nervous system disease, knowledge of the mechanisms that underlie Alzheimer, Motor neuron, Parkinson and Huntington disease, and appreciation that abnormal protein aggregates are a common feature in neurodegenerative disorders. Current therapeutic strategies available for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders and the potential for the development of novel treatment strategies will also be addressed.
