Learning outcomes

L’insegnamento si propone di far acquisire agli studenti elementi fondamentali per la conoscenza della neuroanatomia umana, della neuropatologia e delle funzioni cognitive umane al fine della comprensione delle principali patologie neurologiche con particolare riferimento alle patologie di confine tra neurologia e psichiatria.

MODULO NEUROANATOMIA Obiettivi formativi: Acquisire una sufficiente conoscenza della neuroanatomia umana da utilizzare nel proseguo degli studi e nell’attività professionale.

MODULO NEUROPATOLOGIA E NEUROLOGIA Obiettivi formativi: Acquisizione di conoscenze sulle principali patologie in neurologia, con particolare riferimento alla patologia di confine tra neurologia e psichiatria. Acquisizione di conoscenza sulla semeiotica neurologica, con particolare riferimento ai principali quadri cognitivi ed alle principali sindromi neurologiche. Acquisizione di nozioni elementari di neuropatologia.

MODULO PSICOLOGIA GENERALE E PSICOBIOLOGIA Obiettivi formativi: Correlati neurobiologici e neurofisiologici delle funzioni cognitive umane. Evidenze neuropsicologiche di deficit delle funzioni cognitive in seguito a lesioni cerebrali focali.
