Track 05: Neuro Pathology
Neuropathology is the study of pathology focused on the disease of the brain, spinal cord, and neural tissue. This consists of both central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Neuropathologists usually work in a department of anatomic pathology for a diagnosis. Tissue analysis appears from either surgical biopsies or post mortem autopsies and this tissue samples include muscle fibbers and nervous tissue. It’s also related to forensic pathology because brain disease or brain injury can be related to brain death.
