Functional and cognitive neuroanatomy (Online) University of Bordeaux
After course completion, student has the knowledge about/knows howto/is able to:- Demonstrate an understanding of the structural and functionalorganization of the nervous system and its relations with othersystems. - Obtain a series of histological brain sections and theapplication of conventional immunocytochemical techniques. The studentwill be able to mount a complete series of rat brain and applyconventional histochemistry and immunocytochemistry techniques. -Be able to define the major divisions of the brain in histologicalsections - Ability to assign a particular region or cerebral coreto any of the functional systems - Ability to discriminatesubdivisions within a region based on the distribution of certainmarkers - Organize information effectively in public exhibitions onfunctional systems - Demonstrate ability to solve theoretical andrelated to the subject under study practical issues.
Applicants should have basis in Biology at the Bachelor level.
- Formative assessment through online activities - Summativeassessment at the final exam (2h)
The course is organized in 6 tracks and each track is opened everyweek untl completion of the course. For each track, an opening sessionis delivered by visioconference in which a basic explanation of thetopic is delivered. Also some documents are available for thestuddents and a set of activities to work these basic concepts. Theactivities becomes closed at the end of each week and evaluated. Atthe end of the course a general evaluation process is delivered.The course is aimed at study the basic structure of the nervous systemand the general connections between its components subserving neuralfunction including:- General organization of the nervous system - Information flow inthe nervous system - Chemical neuroanatomy: glutamatergic systems,GABAergic, cholinergic, serotonergic, dopaminergic, noradrenergic,nitrergic, peptidergic - Somatosensory pathway, receptors -Somatosensory pathways anterolateral system and epicriticsensitivity - Vestibular system and proprioception. - CerebellumAuditory System, cochlea - Auditory centers of the brainstem,thalamus and cortex, tonotopy - Visual pathways: visual centers andrepresentation of space in the retina, thalamus, and cortex, centersfor eye movements - Gustatory system and baroreceptors - Centralpathways - Olfactory systems: olfactory mucosa, olfactory tract - Motor systems: Common motor final pathway - Extrapyramidalpathways - Cognitive systems: Hippocampus, entorhinal cortex,neocortex. subcortical circuits and attention - Emotional systems:Amygdala, prefrontal cortex, ventral striatum, thalamus nucleusaccumbens - Metabolic homeostatic systems - Circumventricularhypothalamic nuclei - Brainstem Circadian regulation systems -Circuits of the sleep-wake succession
