Neuroanatomy, Behavior, and Health (3) The neuroanatomical bases of behavior, health, and disease.
BB H 368 Neuroanatomy, Behavior, and Health (3)
BBH 368 will examine, in detail and in depth, the relationships between the multitudinous structures of the human nervous system and their roles in monitoring and controlling all functions of the body, in behavior and in health and disease. Because of the complexity of the anatomy of the nervous system, of necessity there will be an emphasis on each student developing a three-dimensional understanding of the brain's structures and their geographic relationships to each other. For students majoring in BBH, this course provides a foundation and preparation for BBH 469 & 470, the two semester Neurobiology/Integrative Neuroscience course sequence, which assumes that the student has a basic, but detailed knowledge of the nervous system. This course will count toward fulfilling the BBH major requirement, "Take 15 credits in Biobehavioral Health." It will also count toward fulfilling the requirement of 9 credits of additional courses in the Neuroscience Minor.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to: a)Identify on gross specimens and in slides of sections of the human nervous system the important nuclei, tracts and supporting structures. b)Describe the important pathways and circuits between the different components and nuclei of the human nervous system. c)Describe the role of each nucleus, tract, and circuit in controlling functions and behavior. d)Describe the expected deficits in function and behavior resulting from injury or disruption of each nucleus and tract.
