BASIG 1514: Integrated Basic Sciences V

Credits 4.5
BASIG 1514 provides an overview of the structure and function of the nervous system and is composed of one module titled Nervous System. Module 9 begins by discussing the nervous system in terms of its organization, support systems, and structure including the histology of nervous tissue, brain biochemistry, and mechanisms of neurotransmission including development of action potentials and synaptic transmission. This is followed by nervous system development, and then descriptions of the structure and function of the somatosensory pathways, descending motor systems, auditory, vestibular, and visual systems, and finally finishing with the cerebral cortex. Common clinical concerns are also discussed including relevant microbiology and pathology.
