ANA - 500 Neuroscience for Basic and Clinical Applications


This course is a survey of the nervous system integrating information and topics from the disciplines of anatomy, histology, neurobiology and neurology. The course integrates the structure, function and organization of nervous tissue from the cellular through gross anatomic aspects including central, peripheral and autonomic portions of the system. The course includes a series of clinical correlation lectures designed to support and augment the basic science content. Beyond an understanding of the normal structure and function of these systems, students will study the development and growth of these components as well as the changes noted in maturation and ageing processes within these systems. Control mechanisms will be considered as the study during this course moves into the specific clinical scenarios. The basic knowledge of the structure and function of the components of the nervous system will then be applied to the abnormal functions that are the basis for disorders and diseases of this system. The course objectives below represent the content of this course. Individual learning objectives for each lecture as well as for the lab and small group sessions are contained within the educational materials for these sessions. Course cross-listed with GCC-650. Prerequisite: courses in human biology or anatomy and physiology or comparative anatomy, and permission of instructor. Retake Counts for Credit: No. Pass/No Pass Grading Allowed: No. Credit(s): 3
