NERS 5810 Neuroscience

[6 credit hours]

The content of the medical neuroscience course includes not only the basic science concepts introduced in more traditional neuroanatomy courses, it also incorporates neurohistology, neuroembryology, neurophysiology, neuropathology, and neuroradiology. The usefulness of these concepts are reinforced by numerous clinically-based lectures which emphasize the importance of integrating basic neuroanatomical knowledge with the clinical symptoms presented by a neurological deficit. Other clinically-based lectures present current medical concepts concerning neuroimmunology, neurodegenerative diseases, pain, sleep, epilepsy, substance abuse, and memory and learning.
