10th Annual Visceral MInd Summer School - A Hands-on Course in the Neuroanatomy of Cognition
September 2nd, 2019
to September 6th, 2019
About the Event
This course is intended for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers studying cognitive neuroscience. Functional neuroanatomy is taught in the context of neurological patients with impairments due to focal brain lesions - to bring neuroanatomy to life, and make it relevant to students of cognitive neuroscience. The 5-day residential includes patient case conferences, systematic training in the drawing and labelling of various anatomical views, and a series of dissection and prosection anatomy sessions. Through a week of immersion, students will gain a 3D familiarity with brain structure by sight and touch, to be correlated with what they see in case conferences and scan reviews.
