Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary exploration of the central nervous system (CNS), the brain and the spinal cord.  Neuroscience is a fascinating, challenging subject.  Some of this is because our understanding of brain structure and function continues to evolve and grow.  Neuroscience is a large and ever-growing subject; new discoveries are being made every day. 

During the course, students will learn about the structure and function of the normal CNS, cognition, the development and modifiability (plasticity) of the adult CNS, and normal and pathological senescence. While the course focuses on the CNS, It also addresses aspects of the peripheral nervous system and how sensory information is detected and delivered to the CNS, and the structure/function of effector (motor) systems. 

Physiology is the study of the function of living organisms, especially of the mechanisms that maintain homeostasis despite changing environmental conditions. Medical Physiology addresses normal human physiology from the cellular to organ level, with an emphasis on homeostasis, integration and control. Within each of four blocks, student focus is on normal function of the system and its normal interactions with the other systems. In addition, student doctors are introduced to aspects of abnormal function in terms of how these disorders may be viewed as failures of the internal regulatory systems, or of their inability to cope with external interference. Physiology is very much a problem-solving discipline, requiring student doctors to apply information and connect concepts. Major class activities are lectures,case-based discussions and interactive problem solving sessions. The course goal of group sessions is to assist in application of physiological concepts and development of the problem solving skills needed to become highly qualified physicians. This course lays the groundwork for success in second year courses, particularly pharmacoloogy and pathology, clinical rotations and beyond.

This course is designed to give a broad understanding of cell biology, microanatomy, and embryology, which collectively can be thought of as the foundation for courses such as physiology, pathology and obstetrics and gynecology.

This course presents the macroscopic structure of the human body using a regional approach.  Emphasis is placed on the correlation between anatomical structure and function on the one hand, and clinical and imaging applications on the other.  The laboratory includes such resources as cadaver dissection, bones, models, radiographs, MRIs, and CT scans.
