Course description

This is a one day course aimed at covering clinically relevant neuroanatomy. The course covers the development of the nervous system, projection tracts, an overview of the neuroanatomy of the basal nuclei and cerebellum, the neuroanatomy of common neurosurgical emergencies and localising vascular lesions of the brainstem. The course assumes no knowledge of neuroanatomy and builds from the ground up. The course is taught in an interactive tutorial format, rather than passive lectures.

By the end of course you should have a firm grasp of neuroanatomical terms, understand basic concepts about the development of the nervous system, appreciate its structure and how this can help localise lesions. Each attendee will receive a small amount of pre-course reading and a course companion guide. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day however, lunch is NOT provided for this event.

Who is this course aimed for

This course is primarily aimed for trainee surgeons, doctors and health professionals in neurosurgery and neurology, but also for neuroscientists wishing to refresh their neuroanatomical knowledge. As the course builds from the ground up, it is suitable for medical, dental, biomedical, pharmacy, anatomy and biology undergraduates.
