This includes an overview of the anatomical organization and function of the central nervous system, gross anatomy of both central and peripheral nervous system (including blood supply and meninges), sensory pathways, motor pathways, cranial nerves, and the and spinal cord and spinal nerves. At the end of the course students should have a basic working knowledge of the central nervous system in order to participate in the neurological examination of individuals with neurological impairments.
