Introduces students to key concepts in Neuroscience and provides a neural basis for the understanding of the human nervous systems and how they function together in healthy and clinical context.
- Overview of the nervous system
- The cerebral cortex and vascular supply
- The spinal cord, peripheral nerves and plexuses
- The motor systems
- The sensory systems
- The autonomic nervous system
- The cranial nerves and brainstem
- Higher order functions of the nervous system
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||analyse and compare the structural organisation of the human nervous system|
|2||outline and compare selected functional components of the human nervous system|
|3||explain the effects of damage to functional components of the human nervous system.|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- analyse and compare the structural organisation of the human nervous system
- outline and compare selected functional components of the human nervous system
- explain the effects of damage to functional components of the human nervous system.
