DPT 6303 - Neuroscience LectureCredits: 3 Hrs.
This course provides lectures in four units that cover the normal gross anatomical structures and relationships of the brain and spinal cord. Published text, atlases of cross-sections, heuristic models and connectional diagrams are introduced to emphasize the three-dimensional and serial connections and relationships essential to understanding the development and normal function of the central nervous system (CNS). Frequent clinical correlations and case studies will provide for the classification, application and analysis of the potential impact of trauma, disease, and abnormal development as major contributors to structural variation and functional disability. This course has a web-assisted component and must be combined with the concurrent 1 credit hour Human Neuroscience Lab course.
