Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course introduces students to the anatomy and clinically relevant functioning of the nervous system, with a strong emphasis on the central nervous system. Students begin by studying the gross anatomy of the brain, spinal cord, cranial cavity, and vertebral canal, including the meninges and vasculature associated with the CNS. Clinical applications in anesthesia and radiology, such as epidural anesthesia, myelography, and MRI are covered. As the course progresses, students learn how the nervous system functions in various contexts including spinal and cranial nerve reflexes, autonomic regulation, somatosensory and visual pathways, and motor control. Clinical applications covered include anatomical localization of nervous system lesions based on neurological exam findings and the effects of pain and stress on aspects of physiology via CNS pathways.
