This chapter has a significant section on neuroanatomy, as this is key to the diagnostic process in Neurology (from the greek “neuron” meaning sinew, tendon or nerve) in addition to understanding and interpreting neuroimaging. The physiology of neurons, synapses and skeletal muscle are then described with an emphasis on pathological conditions that interfere with normal function.
