Lectures: 10 sessions / 2 weeks, 3 hours / session
This course reviews neuroanatomy used in research, ranging from amphibians to humans. The course is designed to give researchers a grounding in the basics of neuroanatomy. Mammal and amphibian brains are used for anatomical demonstrations.
The major systems will be reviewed following a detailed examination of the major structures in the brain:
The major functional components of the CNS will then be reviewed individually:
The course will then continue with how these various CNS pieces and parts work together. To conclude, functional organization and information flow in the neocortex will be discussed.
