ANAT 827 Functional Neuroanatomy Matthew Ennis
Start date:2016-08-15End date:2016-12-16
Time:10-11:30Place:Link 508, GEB B201-204Duration:Tu-Th 1.5 hours each Credit:3
A lecture and laboratory course dealing with the structure and function of the mammalian central nervous system. The emphasis of the course is on human neuroanatomy, but comparisons are made with the rodent brain using the rat as a model system. The first one-third of the course provides a synopsis of core concepts and tools used in contemporary neuroanatomical research. This material focuses on an understanding of the principles underlying neuroanatomical approaches, as well as their advantages and potential pitfalls. The final two-thirds of the course covers the basic organization of the central nervous system, including in-depth consideration of its major sensory, motor, and limbic components. This part of the course includes laboratory study on the gross anatomy of the brain. An introductory course in neuroscience is highly recommended. (didactic, lecture lab)
