GHHE 000/5510 - Applied Neuroscience I (3 cr.)



Description
Structure and Function. This course is designed primarily for those seeking a career in the medical or biomedical professions. It will provide the student with a foundation for understanding neurological dysfunction and areas of research in the neurosciences. Integration, rather than segregation, between structure and function are emphasized. This course will enable the student to be conversant in the molecular and cellular structure and function of the nervous system, with emphasis on neuroplasticity and integrative function. The organizing theme is how neurological function is influenced by disease or trauma, learning and developmental change. This is illustrated in a multidisciplinary fashion: morphology, physiology, biochemistry and clinical manifestations. Examples of pathological, occupational and environmental causes of neurological disease are highlighted through lectures and neurocognitive exercises. The convergence of neurodegenerative mechanisms and approaches used in diagnosis and understanding of impairment are stressed as essential components of devising effective therapy. Permission of Instructor.
