Clinical Neuroscience: An Illustrated Colour Text, 1e (Churchill-Livingstone)
This exciting and popular 3-day programme provides a detailed overview of human brain anatomy presented in a very clear and accessible way. The approach is unlike traditional anatomy courses and emphasises understanding over rote learning. The content is broad, but focuses on structures of central importance to cognitive and imaging neurosciences -- including the functional anatomy of the cerebral cortex, white matter, basal ganglia, limbic lobe, hippocampus and amygdala.
A combination of integrated lectures and (optional) anatomy practical gives the student a firm grasp of the three-dimensional structure of the brain and a solid understanding of the clinical and functional relevance of its different parts. Students find this approach enjoyable and a powerful aid to long-term recall.
