Visceral Mind Functional Neuroanatomy

when 4 September 2023 - 8 September 2023
language English
duration 1 week
fee GBP 850

There is no substitute for the life-changing experience of dissecting the human brain, and no better way to learn, by both sight and touch, the three-dimensional brain.

Functional neuroanatomy is taught in the context of neurological patients with impairments due to focal brain lesions, and hands-on neuroanatomy classes with human brain tissue – to bring neuroanatomy to life and make it relevant to students of cognitive neuroscience

Course leader

Prof. Oliver Turnbull, Professor of Neuropsychology

Target group

This course is intended for clinicians and postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers studying cognitive neuroscience.

Course aim

We begin with case conferences in which patients with neurological signs of lesion to a system or pathway are interviewed and examined, and in which the techniques of neurological examination and principles of localisation are highlighted. The patient's scans will be reviewed for clinic-anatomical correlation relating signs and symptoms to radiological anatomy. In the brain dissection lab, students will gain a 3D familiarity with brain structure, by sight and touch, to be correlated with what they see in case conferences and scan reviews.
