BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Mar 19, 2020

They say the eyes are the window to the soul. Well, maybe. They also happen to be the first organ we (perhaps, unknowingly) examine whenever we encounter a patient. This week on the program, we build on the prior episode about anisocoria (featuring Dr. Ali Hamedani, episode 74) and discuss the examination of the pupil, and all that these 3-5 millimeters of tissue can teach us.

Plus, some Dad jokes at the end...
