ONLINE: This course is a five-lecture survey of common neurological problems that members of the OLLI audience and their families face quite frequently. My intent, as a retired neurologist, is to explain these often frightening and confusing issues to the intelligent lay public in a way that helps foster further understanding of these conditions. This course will be in lecture format with post-lecture questions and answers. The topics to be covered are: 1) migraine and other headaches, 2) disorders of memory (Alzheimer's and related conditions), 3) Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, 4) neuropathy and other neuromuscular disorders and 5) a review of how CT scans and MRI scans work. The intent of the course is to help the general layperson understand these complex issues so they can be better prepared to work with their health care providers and family members. | Lecture + Q&A.
