INTER 109 - Cranial and Neuroanatomy

6.00 Credits

This course is designed to introduce students to gross anatomy of the human central nervous system (CNS) and cranial/head and neck anatomy, and improve students understanding of neural mechanisms underlying nervous system function. The course will cover the organization of the CNS, principles of neural transmission, normal and pathological CNS functioning, nervous system development, cell types of the CNS, and the neural basis of higher cortical functions. Students are provided lecture and laboratory study of human nervous system gross anatomy, including the major structures, pathways, tracts, nuclei, related vascular structures, the ventricular system, cranial nerves, and spatial relationships to other anatomic structures. The course is focused on pertinent material including neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and cranial/head and neck anatomy.
