  • Week 1 - Getting Started in Medical Neuroscience

    Let's get started in Medical Neuroscience! Each module in Medical Neuroscience will begin with a brief description like this that provides you with an overview of the module. In this first module, you will get to know something about Prof. White and his car...

  • Week 1 - Neuroanatomy: Introducing the Human Brain
    Your introduction to Medical Neuroscience continues as you experience in this module a brief introduction to the human brain, its component cells, and some basic anatomical conventions for finding your way around the human central nervous system.
  • Week 2 - Neuroanatomy: Surface Anatomy of the Human CNS
    We now begin in earnest our lessons on neuroanatomy with the surface of the human brain, including a brief run through the cranial nerves and the blood supply to the CNS. In this module, you will learn the basic subdivisions of the vertebrate nervous system; h...
  • Week 2 - Neuroanatomy: Internal Anatomy of the Human CNS
     
  • Week 3 - Neural Signaling: Electrical Excitability and Signal Propagation
    We now turn our attention from the tangible (human neuroanatomy) to the physiological as we explore the means by which neurons generate, propagate and communicate electrical signals. After exploring those structures in the human brain that are visible to the u...
  • Week 4 - Neural Signaling: Synaptic Transmission and Synaptic Plasticity
    Let’s continue our studies of neural signaling by learning about what happens at synaptic junctions, where the terminal ending of one neuron meets a complementary process of another excitable cell.
  • Week 5 - Sensory Systems: General Principles and Somatic Sensation
    We have reached a significant juncture in Medical Neuroscience as we turn our attention to the organization and function of the sensory systems. We will begin our studies with the somatic sensory systems, which includes subsystems for mechanical sensation and ...
  • Week 6 - Sensory Systems: The Visual System
    This module will provide lessons that are designed to help you understand the basic mechanisms by which light is transduced into electrical signals that are then used to construct visual perceptions in the brain. Your studies of the visual system will benefit ...
  • Week 7 - Sensory Systems: Audition, Vestibular Sensation and the Chemical Senses
    Our survey of the sensory systems continues as we now turn our attention to the auditory system, the vestibular system, and the chemical sensory systems. As you study this content, notice the similarities and the differences that pertain to the general mechani...
  • Week 8 - Movement and Motor Control: Lower and Upper Motor Neurons
    We come now to another pivot in Medical Neuroscience where our focus shifts from sensation to action. Or to borrow a phrase made famous by C.S. Sherrington more than a century ago (the title of his classic text), we will now consider the “integrative action of...
  • Week 8 - Movement and Motor Control: Understanding the Paradigm of Eye Movements
    At this juncture in our exploration of motor control, let’s focus on one of the best studied paradigms for understanding the neural control of movement: the eye movement system.
  • Week 9 - Movement and Motor Control: Modulation of Movement
    Next, we will consider two major brain systems that modulate the output of upper motor neuronal circuits: the basal ganglia and the cerebellum. Take note: the output of these systems is NOT directed at lower motor circuits directly; rather, their output engage...
  • Week 9 - Movement and Motor Control: Visceral Motor Control
    We conclude our survey of movement and motor control by considering the visceral motor system, perhaps better known as the autonomic nervous system. As you study this lesson, consider how the disparate physiology of the viscera has impact not only on the inter...
  • Week 10 - The Changing Brain: The Brain Across the Lifespan
    This module represents another turning point in Medical Neuroscience. Now that we have surveyed human neuroanatomy and our sensory and motor systems, we are ready to take a step back and consider how this magnificent central nervous system came to be the way t...
  • Week 11 - Complex Brain Functions: Associational Cortex
    It may surprise you to know that in all of our studies of the neural systems for sensation and action, we have yet to properly account for the organization and function of roughly 75% of the entire cerebral mantle. Thus, only 25% of the cerebral cortex is acco...
  • Week 12 - Complex Brain Functions: Sleep, Emotion and Addiction
    In this concluding module of Medical Neuroscience, we will consider the neurobiology of sleep and the neurobiology of emotion, including addiction. Both topics involve explorations of complex, widely distributed systems in the forebrain and brainstem that modu...
  • Week 13 - Comprehensive Final Exam
    This module contains materials that will help you prepare for the final challenge in Medical Neuroscience: our clinical case-based, Comprehensive Final Exam.
  • Week 13 - Closing Remarks
    Please allow me a few more moments of your time to express my thanks for all your efforts to make it through Medical Neuroscience, and to wish you well on all your future endeavors!

Editor

A Duke University é uma universidade privada de investigação norte-americana situada em Durham, na Carolina do Norte. A universidade tem o nome da dinastia Duke. 

Embora a universidade só tenha sido oficialmente fundada em 1924 (as suas raízes remontam a 1838). Frequentemente referida como a "Harvard do Sul", a Duke é a universidade mais selectiva do Sul dos Estados Unidos. 

A universidade é membro da Associação das Universidades Americanas, uma associação que, desde 1900, reúne as universidades de investigação de elite da América do Norte.

Plataforma
