CLI NP530 - Functional Neuroanatomy and Neuropathology

(Credits: 3)

This course provides students with a comprehensive overview of central nervous system structure and function. An overview of other physiological systems is integrated as necessary to equip the future practitioner for dealing with a broad spectrum of rehabilitative concerns. Foundational information will be integrated with neuropathology, neuroepidemiology, and the neurobehavioral consequences of congenital and acquired neurological diseases and disorders. Additionally, non-neurological conditions affecting central nervous system functioning are reviewed. Neuroradiology is also addressed from a neuropsychological and research perspective. Laboratory examination of a specimen of a human brain will be included as available.
