Aims
The course gives an overview of the functions and structures of brain regions and circuitries involved in perception, cognition, emotion, and motion. After this course, students have acquired the basic knowledge of human neuroanatomy. In addition, they will have a general understanding about anatomical structures and their connective structures that are involved in a wide variety of cognitive functions.
Content
The students will get an introduction into the human neuroanatomy by means of both lectures and practicals. The practical work involves the macroscopic dissection of the human brain. In addition, brain slices will be examined and compared with the 3D specimens. Finally,students will get the opportunity to visit the pathological museum to get an impression of the anatomy of several brain pathologies. Knowledge of the course material will be tested with a written exam. Examples of exam questions will be made available via Brightspace and dropbox.

COURSE SCHEDULE (tentative)
For the practicals, students will be allocated to Group A or Group B when they enroll for the course.
