Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology (9 ECTS)

The Neuroanatomy component of the course covers the anatomy and organization of the nervous system, including spinal cord and pathways, sensory and motor systems, brain anatomy, autonomic nervous system (ANS) and cerebral circulation. The Neurophysiology component covers membrane potentials, synaptic transmission, neurotransmitters, spinal reflexes, ANS, somatosensory system, special senses control of voluntary movement, basal ganglia, cerebellum, cerebrospinal fluid, bloodbrain barrier, sleep and wakefulness, electroencephalogram, learning and memory.

Learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will have the knowledge to understand the structure and function of the nervous system—from the properties of individual nerve cells to their role in organized neuronal circuits that generate behavior.
