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) and lympatic system.

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.

Students should be able to describe the anatomy of the heart and the structure of blood vessels, together with the main arteries and veins. Finally, students shoul be able to describe the structures of the lymphatic system (primary and secondary lymphoid organs, lymphatic vessels).

Learning assessment methods

Written exam. 

  • The test consists of 30 multiple choice questions. Each question has 4 possible answers of which from 0 to 4 can be correct.
  • 1 point for each correct answer; minus 0.5 for each wrong answer.
  • The minimum grade to pass the exam is 18/30
Oggetto:

Support activities

  • Practical exercises of microscopical (slides) and macroscopical (brain and sections) anatomy;
  • Virtual anatomic table;
  • Movies of patients affected by nervous diseases.
  • Dissection of pig's heart
