Course objectives

The course aims to support the basic knowledge of the morphological organization, of the architecture and of the fundamental functional properties of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous system, and of sense organs.

The course aims also to support the basic knowledge of the cardiovascular system (heart and vessels).

Results of learning outcomes

The student should be able to describe the structures of the central nervous system and in particular the nuclei and the laminar structures, together with their anatomical connections. She/he must be able to describe the pathway and the innervation of the peripheral nerves and of the autonomic nerves. Moreover, for each structure, she/he should know the basic functional anatomy and the relevance of anatomy in relationship with some neural pathologies.

Students should also be able to describe the structure of the skull.

Finally, students should be able to describe the anatomy of the heart and the structure of blood vessels, together with the main arteries and veins.

  • Central Nervous System: overall organization. Macro- and micro-anatomy of the spinal cord, brainstem, cerebellum, diencephalon, telencephalon. Sensory, motor, correlative and associative pathways. Limbic system. Encephalic and spinal meninges. Cerebral ventricles and liquor circulation.
  • Peripheral Nervous System: organization (macro- and micro-anatomy) of cranial and spinal nerves.
  • Autonomic Nervous System: sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. Enteric nervous system.
  • Sense Organs: overall organization. Fundamental morphological characteristics of the eye, ear, gustative receptors, olfactory receptors, sense corpuscles and proprioceptors.
