CLINICAL ANATOMY AND NEUROSCIENCES
Credit points: 15
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. The concepts of human structure and function introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB will be applied to the head, orbit, brain and nervous systems. Emphasis will be placed on developing the student's abilities to predict the effects of impaired structure and function in order to assist in clinical reasoning, practice and consultation in Orthoptics.
