Neuroanatomy for the clinical neuropsychologist ( points)


Leader: Associate Professor Stephen Robinson

Clayton First semester 2003 (Day)
Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: This subject will review neuroanatomical principles, with emphasis on established structure-function relationships. Students will use brain specimens and a computer simulation program to become familiar with brain regions including the cerebral cortex, spinal cord, brainstem, basal ganglia, cerebellum, hypothalamus, limbic system and thalamus. Students will also learn about fibre systems in the brain, the meningeal brain coverings, the cranial nerves, the blood supply to the brain and the ventricular system. The principles of cerebral asymmetry and hemispheric specialization will be discussed, as will the behavioural consequences of localized damage to each defined brain region.

Assessment: Continuous assessment practical test (50%) Theory exam (25%) Spot test (25%)
