Cerebral Hemispheres: Neuropathology and Clinical Correlation I. Vascular Syndromes

  • Elliott M. Marcus
  • Stanley Jacobson


The course and nature of some of the more common diseases affecting the cerebral hemispheres are already familiar to the student on the basis of those case histories presented in the previous chapter on cortical localization. We will refer back to some of those case histories. However, we will not limit our discussion simply to the neocortex but will discuss the cerebral hemispheres in a more general sense. It will also be convenient at this point to consider several broad categories of diseases, not previously discussed, which do not necessarily restrict themselves to the cerebral hemispheres.
