Särskild behörighet
Kursens syfte The purpose of this course is to provide students without a previous education in biomedicine/medicine knowledge in basic human neuroscience equivalent to that of the medical programme. It will satisfy the requirement for a course providing a grounding in human biology/physiology and/or pathology.
Kursens lärandemål After the course, the doctoral student shall have obtained a thorough knowledge about the human nervous system that includes the following: 1) Macro- and microscopic organization and development of the nervous system; 2) Cellular neurobiology including signaling in the nervous system; 3) Structure and function of sensory systems underlying vision, somatosensation and pain, hearing and balance, smell and taste; 4) Structure and function of motor systems underlying the planning, initiation and regulation of movements. 5) Higher central nervous system functions including neuropsychology and regulation of behavior.
Kursens innehåll The course will follow the curriculum of the Neuroscience course for medical students. The content consists of lectures, seminars and practicals that provide knowledge and understanding of nervous system organization and development, cellular neurobiology, sensory and motor functions, and higher nervous system functions.
Arbetsformer Lectures, laboratory practicals, oral exam seminars, and neuroanatomy and neurohistology workshops.
Obligatoriska moment The three oral exam seminars, the practical test in neuroanatomy and the final exam.
Examination Three formative oral exam seminars, one formative practical test in neuroanatomy, and a final summative written exam.
Kurslitteratur och övriga läromedel Mandatory literature: Neuroscience by D. Purves et al, 6th edition, Sinauer, Sunderland, USA.

Urval av studenter Doctoral students that work in a neuroscience-related project but lack a basic education in biomedicine/medicine will get priority. The start date of doctoral studies will also be considered.
Övrig information The course is given in parallel with the neuroscience course in the medicine programme. All teaching activities will take place in Solna Campus. To obtain a detailed schedule send an e-mail to lennart.brodin@ki.se. The course will meet the requirement for a course providing the grounding in human biology/physiology and/or pathology, but cannot be counted as a project specific course.
