Learning Objectives

Acquisition of knowledge about the anatomical structure and about the main functions of the nervous system. The aim of the course is to provide students with the necessary knowledge about the main brain functions ( including sight, motor planning etc ... ) and to allow the psychologists to understand the physical phenomena underlying mental processes.

Program

The program is divided into three parts: Part I: Introduction to the biology of the nervous system cells - Introduction to cell biology (lecture 1-2); Overview on nervous system cells (lecture 3); Potential of rest and action (lecture 4-5); The synaptic transmission (lecture 6).  Part II : anatomy of the nervous system - The general organization of the nervous system of mammals (lecture 7-8); meninges and ventricular system (lecture 9); The stratification of the cerebral cortex (lecture 10); Telencephalon; anatomy; organization of white matter (lecture 11 -112-13); Diencephalon (lecture 14); Cerebellum and Medulla (lecture 16-17).
