Offered: Fall 2019
Course: NEUROSCI 380L
This course provides a systemic survey of the structure and function of the human central nervous system, with an emphasis on neural systems and pathways that mediate sensation, action and embodied cognition. The emphasis throughout the course is on learning clinical neuroanatomy through hands-on explorations of human brain specimens and inductive reasoning through neurological cases. This course covers in-depth the clinical neuroanatomy taught in the first year of medical education, making this course ideal for pre-medical and other pre-health students. The course should also be valuable to anyone headed to graduate school for cognitive neuroscience or neurobiology and anyone seeking an anatomical framework for understanding the human brain.
