This course is designed to provide an overview of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, signs and symptoms of neurological pathology for the professional performing neurodiagnostics in general and intraoperative neuromonitoring in particular. Included are the central, peripheral nervous system and autonomic nervous systems, their support structures, brain and brainstem anatomy, the sensory and motor pathways, the visual system, cranial nerves, blood supply to the CNS And PNS, the Limbic System, neuroendocrine, pituitary and hypothalamus, nerve root and spine anatomy. The course uses a text, “Neuroanatomy Through Clincial Cases” by Hal Bloomenfeld, First Edition and provided multiple case studies to help provide better understanding of these complex systems. This course is helpful to those entering the field or those already working in the field requiring a refresher or more in depth study in neuroanatomy. The course is divided up into 12 lessons; each one taking approximately a week to complete. 20 ACE Credits are awarded upon successful completion.
