The nervous system is thematically taught, weaving the disciplines of anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology & therapeutics, physiology and psychiatry together to understand its complexity from development to degeneration, as well as sensory, motor and regulatory systems. An effort is made to ensure the nervous system and its effects are studied from infancy to advanced age.
Lectures and practicals take place over a 6-week period and are supplemented by interactive workshops taught with a focus on specific clinical conditions, such as stroke, depression, and Alzheimer's disease. Educators contribute to research at both the Global Brain Health Institute and the Trinity College Institute for Neuroscience.
It was nice to be completely submersed in the discipline.
The different aspects were integrated nicely.
