Unit Description

This unit will explore the anatomy of the nervous system at all of its levels of organisation from histological through to gross anatomy including the developing brain. Topics will include the histological exploration of neurons and glia, neurodevelopment, gross anatomy of both the peripheral and central nervous system, including the major nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, diencephalon and cerebrum as well as the anatomy of the eye and ear.
