A fight in a college town bar between the football player of one team and a drunken fan of a rival team results in a serious spinal cord injury. Students working in groups read the case and research the questions associated with it, which they then discuss in class. The case was designed to help pharmacy students understand the architecture of the central nervous system, its major motor/sensory tracts, the signs/symptoms of motor and sensory tract lesions, and the treatment of spinal cord injuries. It could be used in any course in which students have a basic knowledge of integrative physiology and have been exposed to the immune system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system, such as an undergraduate neuroscience course.
