Objectifs et compétences

Objectifs :
To know

• The basic principles of the nervous system organization and the main function of each part

• The main neural pathways discharging the main functions of neural processing

• The main transmitters operating in each system

• The rationale of sensory overlapping, homeostasis processing, behavioral responses and feed back functions.

• The basic methods of functional neuroanatomy.

To understand

• How information is being processed in each system and subsystem

• How different modalities of information are being overlapped along the neuakl pathways

• How connections are behind neural processing

• How interfering neural processing in a particular nucleus or structure may undergo behavioral changes

• How a lesion may undergo in a variety of symptoms
