About the Course
Medical Neuroscience explores the organization and physiology of the human central nervous system. This course is designed for first-year students in graduate-level health professions programs. It builds upon knowledge acquired in prior studies of cellular and molecular biology, general physiology, and gross human anatomy. The course provides students an understanding of the essential principles of neurological function, from cellular and molecular mechanisms of neural signaling and plasticity to the organization and function of sensory and motor systems. This course emphasizes the neural and vascular anatomy of the human brain and spinal cord, providing an anatomical framework for localizing lesions within the central nervous system. It also emphasizes the neurobiological foundation for understanding mental illness and disorders of human behavior.
The overall goal is to equip students of the health professions for interpreting impairments of sensation, action and cognition that accompany neurological injury, disease or dysfunction. Students currently pursuing advanced studies in the brain sciences will benefit from this course by learning the fundamentals of functional neuroanatomy and how neuroscience discovery translates to clinical practice.
This course also reminded me of a webpage that I had once bookmarked about a year or so ago: 12 Dozen Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free.
While exploring, I found this a course on listening to music (which, has been a little bit of a theme of mine the last few months), and figured it might be worth my time. Perhaps I might learn something…
