BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Mar 22, 2018

This throwback Thursday, we revisit a high-yield discussion on diplopia, featuring Dr. Ali Hamedani. Ali navigates us through the orbit, brainstem, and midbrain as we discern the structural and physiological problems that can impede extra-ocular movements.

Produced by James E. Siegler. Music by Little Glass Men and Montplaisir. Voiceover by Erika Mejia. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for clinical decision making.
