Subject outline

This subject will provide a working knowledge about neuroanatomy, neuroscience, and neuropsychology upon which information about neuropsychological models and syndromes can be built. The subject will strongly emphasise the association between structure, system and function, and how this specialised knowledge can be applied to clinical cases. The program will consist of a mixture of lectures and seminars.
