Course Description

ONLINE: Consciousness requires both wakefulness and awareness. A disorder of consciousness, or impaired consciousness, is a state where one’s consciousness has been affected by damage to the brain. Disorders of conscious awareness are among the most frightening we all face. In this lecture-based course, we will examine these disorders from the perspective of health care consumers. The topics to be covered are: coma, epilepsy, nonepileptic episodes of loss of awareness, the neurobiology of sleep, and disorders of sleep such as sleep apnea, insomnia and narcolepsy. Students will be guided through examples of these disorders based on the instructor’s 40 years of experience as a clinical neurologist. We will explore these issues using case vignettes, MRIs and medical video clips. | Lecture + Q&A.
