Introduction to the types of glial cells, homeostasis (influence of cerebral blood flow and influence on neurons), insulation and protection of axons (myelin sheath; nodes of Ranvier), microglia and reactions of the CNS to injury.
This lecture will discuss how understanding and applying simple neuroanatomical rules, one can localize the damage along the neuroaxis, the first crucial step toward making the correct clinical diagnosis and initiating treatment.
