Medical schools have realized the importance of including clinical work early and have termed the mixing of basic and clinical sciences as vertical integration. Early clinical exposure is being  done for teaching basic sciences and applied aspects  medical students. As part of above mentioned programme we make an attempt to teach neurophysiology by case-based approach. Pre-clinical medical students were chosen for our study. We chose  pyramidal tract  study-both normal physiology and applied aspects  to teach  students by conventional didactic method and case based study. Students showed better performance in learning the applied aspects of neurophysiology   after the case-based study method. The initiative not only integrated physiology with related basic sciences and clinical medicine but importantly linked students’ developing knowledge of theory to practice.
