CLINICAL ANATOMY AND NEUROSCIENCES

HBS2CAN

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will develop an understanding of the functional anatomy and neurosciences relevant to orthoptics and the role of the central and peripheral nervous system in sensory and motor function. In this subject. The concepts of human structure and function introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB will be applied to the head and nervous systems. Emphasis will be placed on developing students' abilities to predict the effects of impaired structure and function. This subject will provide students with foundation knowledge to assist in clinical reasoning, practice and consultation in orthoptics.
