In this case study, translated from the original English into Hebrew, students read and interpret the signs and symptoms of a woman suffering from a neurological disorder and make a diagnosis. The case was developed for use in a one-semester animal physiology course taken by sophomore and junior science majors. It also could be used in an anatomy and physiology course or in a freshman general biology course.
