Course Objective To grasp the basic concepts of the human nervous system. To define the macroscopic and microscopic features of the human nervous system. To describe the nuclei, pathways, neurotransmitters of the nervous system and teach the vessels (arteries and veines), cisterns, circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid and menengies. To explain the macroscopic and microscopic features of the human nervous system by using human cadavers, models and slides in practice lessons. To establish a connection with the other pre-clinical courses and to facilitate connectivity with the clinical approach
Course Content Anatomy of spinal cord,medulla oblongata, pons and mesencephalon, cerebellum; Cranial nerves;Anatomy of diencephalon and basal ganglia, hemispherium cerebri; Limbic system, ventricular system and menenx; Central nervous system’s vessels, sinuses and cisterns
