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, 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 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 aging processes. The basic knowledge of the structural and functional components of the nervous system will then be applied to the abnormal functions that are the basis for neurological disorders. 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): 2
