Course Summary

During this online distance learning course, you’ll study the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and neurobiology and learn how insights from the laboratory are translated into treatments for patients.

Course description

This distance learning course enables you to apply the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and neurobiology to better understand the clinical features of patients with neurodegenerative disease, the molecular and cellular mechanisms underpinning these devastating disorders, and learn how insights from the laboratory are translated into benefits for patients.

Teaching

The MSc is delivered 100% online and comprises short video lectures and demonstrations, interactive activities, quizzes, student-led group work, online tutorials and discussion forums.

Assessment

Assessment is primarily by written assignments and coursework including video-based poster and oral presentations.

Modules

Clinical neurology is underpinned by knowledge of the neuroanatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system. Therefore, a thorough knowledge of basic neuroanatomy is essential. This module starts with a comprehensive series of short neuroanatomy videos demonstrating laboratory dissection of the human brain and spinal cord. The videos are complemented by an interactive learning resource featuring quizzes and a formative writing exercise.
