Attached teaching material: PPT lecture on Electroencephalography (EEG), polysomnography (PSG) and sleep disorders. The aim of the lecture is to describe the basic principles of electroencephalography, the examination procedure, indications for EEG examination and basic interpretations of the EEG recording. The lecture also discusses the principle and indications and interpretation of the results of the polysomnographic examination. The last part of the lecture is devoted to sleep disorders - their classification, diagnosis (polysomnography, MSLT) and treatment.
Attached teaching material: PPT lecture on Cranial Nerves. The content of the lecture notes related to the lecture on basic anatomy, physiology of the cranial nerves, clinical manifestation in disorders of the functions of the cranial nerves and clinical examination of the functions of the cranial nerves.
Attached teaching material: PPT lecture on Cortical syndromes. The content of lecture notes for the presentation related to the lecture intended for the students of general medicine is focused on the clinical manifestation of damage to individual cortical areas or syndromology of cerebral lobe damage.
Imaging procedures Attached teaching material: PPT lecture on Imaging methods. The lecture is focused on imaging methodologies used in diagnostics in neurology. These are methods such as computed tomography (CT), CT angiography, CT perfusion, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Each methodology contains a description of the principle of how the indications work and a basic description of pathological findings.
Presented teaching material: PPT lecture on Sudden Ischemic Stroke (NCMP). The content of the lecture is definition, pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis (symptomatology according to basin or occluded cerebral vessel), diagnosis (native CT, CT angiography, CT perfusion, MRI), acute management of a patient with ischemic NCMP (intravenous thrombolysis, mechanical thrombectomy, carotid stenting , carotid endarterectomy) and subsequent care and diagnosis of the patient after ischemic NCMP (search for etiology, rehabilitation, screening for cognitive impairment and secondary prevention).
Attached teaching material: PPT lecture on Brain Tumors. The lecture contains information on the classification of tumors of the nervous system (NS) according to WHO, it focuses on the basics of oncogenesis, epidemiology, diagnostics, staging and grading of NS tumors. The lecture contains a more detailed description of the clinic and neuroimaging findings of the most common tumors of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and brain membranes.
Attached teaching material: PPT lecture on Haemorrhagic Strokes (CMP). The lecture content is focused on intracranial hemorrhages: intracerebral hemorrhage and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) - definition, diagnosis (symptomatology, paraclinical examinations), treatment, prognosis and complications.
Presented teaching material: PPT lecture on Headaches. The lecture is focused on classification of headaches, definition and clinical diagnostic criteria for individual types of headaches, differential diagnosis of headaches and treatment or therapeutic options for the treatment of individual types of headaches.

Lectures from the subject of Neurology 2 are intended for students of the fourth year of the study program General Medicine. The individual records of the lecturers explain the main topics according to the current curriculum of the subject, including the topics such as ischemic stroke and many more.
The book is primarily intended for first-year university students, but it is suitable for anyone who needs to learn. Students can find here the basic principles of learning, principles of how to preserve knowledge, how to concentrate without wasting time, how not to stress before a test or exam and many other practical tips. By acquiring simple knowledge, students will be able to learn effectively with the principles of brain-compatible learning in a way that they will acquire as much information as possible in the shortest period of time with maximum retention; that is minimal forgetting.
