Course # NSM521: Brainstem Development, Function and Pathology

Course Description

The objectives of this course are to create a comprehensive understanding of the structure, function and pathology of the human brain stem. Students will be exposed to an understanding of brain stem function by exacting exploration of the medulla oblongata, pons, cerebellum, and midbrain. The brainstem will be understood in function and disease by clinical division into rostral-caudal, anterior-posterior, and medial- lateral systems. A systems approach will address the ascending and descending pathways that connect spinal cord and brain function.
