Course Description


Course Goals

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Basics of nervous system 2 Study about detail structure of the human brain to understand higher brain functions. In particular, learn about cortical structure and functional map.
Neurones and glial cells 1 Study about detail structures and functions of neuron and glial cells.
Neuroimaging techniques 3 Study about measurement principles and analytical methods of representative non-invasive neuro-imaging techniques.
Sensory functions 2 Study about organizations of sensory systems such as visual, auditory and somatosensory systems.
Motor functions 1 Study about organizations and functions of primary motor, premotor and supplementary motor areas.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging and its Application 3 Study about basic principle and pulse sequences of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and its application.
Practice of MRI 2 Practice of MRI acquisition of the head as well as image processing of the MRI data.
Evaluation of understanding 1 We are going to check students' achievement by answering questions from students.
