Objectives

At the end of the course, the student should:
- know the structural organization and the normal functioning of the human body in order to understand the main pathological alterations and to argue about clinical aspects and diagnosis;
- be able to learn autonomously and to provide understandable and univocal description of the acquired notions through the use of correct terminology;
- be able to combine the acquired notions in order to solve complex problems within interdisciplinary contexts.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites: as defined by the academic rules

Functional anatomy of the cranial nerves. essential elements of their apparent origin and course. Organization and main branches of the trigeminal nerve. General organization of the visceral nervous system, sensory and motor components, relationship with the spinal nerves, signs on relations with the cranial nerves.

Teaching Methods

Teaching methods and interaction techniques in the presence of the teacher:
Dialogue in the classroom aimed to understand the issues addressed and the management of doubts.
Combination of lectures and pratice supported by the teacher by using anatomical models.

Methods and distance learning techniques:
the teacher-student communications will be supported with electronic means, including email interaction. The slides of the lectures will be available to the students.

Verification of learning

The Students’ examination will aim at assessing their aquired knowledge in connection with the course and teaching sessions’ contents, as well as their learning skills, ability to correlate different contents and parts, communication skills and use of appropriate specific terms in the subject matter.
Final assessment: oral exam, during periods indicated by the management of the Degree Course. The exam will assess the Student’s “approval” in connection with the course (“idoneita’”). Students must enlist for the exam by means of the ESSE3 on-line system.
