BMSC3036 Nervous System (2 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
The nervous system is responsible for perception of the external environment, an individual’s behaviour in it, and maintenance of the body’s internal environment in readiness for this behaviour. Disorders of the nervous system are responsible for a significant percentage of acute medical admissions and are also responsible for a large proportion of chronic physical disability.
It is therefore important that students should have a general knowledge of the nervous system and it is the objective of this course to achieve this. The course will be taught in the following aspects: (1) anatomy and physiology of the nervous system; (2) major manifestations of nervous system diseases; (3) investigation of neurological diseases; (4) overview of neurological diseases: infection of the nervous system, cerebrovascular disease, trauma, degenerative diseases, diseases of nerves and muscles, disorders of the spine and spinal cord, intracranial mass lesions; and (5) study of clinical cases.
