This “build a case” problem provides students with the opportunity to create their own case study from the ground up. Student working groups are assigned a particular condition that may result in brain damage (such as a stroke) and then build a teaching case in which a number of brain areas may be damaged and functions affected. Students must¬†provide background information on the “patient”, the brain areas affected (both before and after damage), useful means to assess brain function (such as neuroimaging or neuropsychological assessment), as well as a prognosis for the “patient.”
