PT 713 Foundation Sciences: Neuroscience I

This course is designed in a progressive manner.  Students will first learn basic neuroanatomical and brain vascular structures, their relationships to other neuroanatomical structures as well as basic neuroembryology, neurohistology, and neurophysiology.  Next, students will learn regional neuroanatomy and the main function of each regional structure, building on their new knowledge of neuroanatomy using case histories as a learning tool.  By the end of this course, the student will gain the necessary knowledge to proceed to Neuroscience II.
