About the Course
Due to the accelerated pace of research in the field of neuroscience as well as the development of new techniques in neuroimaging, scientists have discovered more about the central and peripheral nervous systems in the last decade than in all previous centuries.
We have designed this course on neuroanatomy by taking advantage of the emerging science to explore the physical structures, organization and related functions of the human nervous system, with the relevant clinical applications, to provide a basis for understanding the clinical correlation of structures involved and the anatomical basis for the disease presentations.
In this course, both the central nervous system comprising of brain and spinal cord and peripheral nervous system comprising of cranial nerves, spinal nerves and autonomic nervous system are all explained in enough detail. The CSF with its circulation, meninges with their sinuses and cisterns, cerebral circulation, functional areas on the sulci and gyri are described in detail with appropriate clinical relevance.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget.
