Hogan 2-112 Cell/Tissue Cultur: Mon, Wed, Fri 1:00PM - 1:50PM
Overview of class
Formerly known as NEUROSCI 390-0-60 Neuro-Anatomy Laboratory. This class provides a broad overview of neuroanatomy and will teach you about the major regions and pathways of the vertebrate central nervous system. In the first section of class, we'll look at neuroanatomy from the perspective of evolutionary biology. We will use comparative anatomy and dissection to better understand the functions of brain regions by comparing their structures across the major vertebrate classes. In the second section of class, we'll look at neuroanatomy from the perspective of medical biology. We will use clinical anatomy and case studies to better understand the functions of brain regions by drawing connections between neurological symptoms and the anatomical localization of lesions. This class may be used as a Neuroscience Group B elective or as a Biology Allied Field elective.
Prerequisites: NEUROSCI 202-0 and NEUROSCI 206-0; or NEUROSCI 311-0 and NEUROSCI 206-0; or BIOL_SCI 302-0.
Students completing this course will:
1. Develop anatomical vocabulary
2. Relate the structure of the central and peripheral nervous systems to their function
3. Understand the anatomical basis of common neurological injuries and diseases.
