GENERIC TERM: The meaning is nonspecific and refers to brain (encephalo), pathology (pathy). That is any brain abnormality which might be diffuse, could be labeled with term. Does not imply any causation or actual underlying diagnosis.

Refer to texts: This site s not a substitute for you reading your course material & completing your course assignments based on that review. Your supervisors will want to see that you have reviewed, understand and answered questions based on that material. A definition is simple, how your supervisors want to integrate it into their coursework is specific.
