What you will learn.

  • Understand brain sectors responsible for hearing, tasting, smelling, and touching
  • Recognize brain structures associated with complex processes like reasoning and feeling
  • Comprehend common nervous system pathologies

About this course:

Scientists have learned more about the central and peripheral nervous systems in the past 10 years than in all previous centuries due to the accelerated pace of research and new techniques in neuroimaging. This course takes advantage of the emerging science to explore the physical structures, organization, and related functions of the human nervous system. Topics include study of the brain sectors responsible for the basic senses (hearing, tasting, smelling, and touching); identifying structures involved with such elementary tasks as breathing, eating, moving, and sleeping; discussion of complex processes, such as communicating, reasoning, and feeling; and a review of common nervous system pathologies and their related structural changes.
Prerequisites
Basic knowledge of human biology and physiology, preferably neurophysiology.
