Fundamentals of Neurological Structures

Course Code: THER 200

Academic Year: 2020-2021

The primary objective of this course is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the organization of the central and peripheral nervous systems. This includes the major cell types that are found in the nervous system, structure of the CNS and PNS as well as an overview of the physiological principles involved in brain function and peripheral nervous conduction. Examination of the brain and spinal cord through laboratory dissections and tutorials will be integral to the learning process. Emphasis in this course is placed on integrating this information into clinical cases to establish a deep understanding of the functional relationship between anatomy, physiology and clinical presentation.
