Try McLeod, Neuro chapter, it has a good section on spinal cord lesions, and cortical lesions

Stroke syndomes involving posterior circulation are explained well in Kumar medicine

USMLE world has very nice questions about them and explains the pathophysiology

Ill sound mean but no one can save you, grab a neuro book, high yield neuroanatomy or whatever book of your choice and start reading.. there is no magic in this, you are a doctor and have studied the material before, no one can explain this better than a good review book and your disposition to understand... this is not renal or pulmonary physiology which can be summarized and explain better, but neurology which is easy if you know the basics.

My advice: buy High yield neuroanatomy or any anatomy book.

any doubt look it up in google or whatever.
