This course introduces students to the organization, structures and functions of the human central nervous system. Higher cognitive and linguistic behaviors are emphasized. This course provides a broad introduction to the topic and is designed to meet the needs of 3rd & 4th year students in Communication Sciences and Disorders and other related disciplines. This course is also appropriate for 1st year students in the undergraduate neuroscience program. Course Goals and objectives include: Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the anatomy, physiology and functional architecture of the human central nervous system with an emphasis on the neural substrates related to perceptual, cognitive and communicative processes (e.g., perception, hearing, vision, receptive/expressive language, executive functions & social cognition). (ASHA Std. III-A, III-B and III-C) Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of neurologically based sensory and motor aspects of hearing, speech, communication, and swallowing (e.g., respiration, phonation, resonance, articulation, and deglutition). (ASHA Stds. III-B and III-C) Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the methods and techniques used in the scientific study of cognitive neuroscience. (ASHA Stds. III-F)
COURSE REQUIREMENTS: This online course is self-paced, with all lecture/presentation slides available at the start of each week. Students are responsible for the lecture materials, weekly assignments and a weekly exam for each of the 4 weeks of the summer semester. It is a full 3 credit course accelerated and condensed into this online format. On-Line Lab Assignments: Throughout the course you will complete electronic digital labs using the Digital Neuroanatomist Website. These visual exercises are intended to compliment the lecture material and the information from the textbook. These assignments are to be completed by midnight on the specific dates according to the course schedule (OLL # x on the syllabus). Textbook Review Questions: Example Essay Questions are located at the end of each chapter of the course textbook. Answers to these questions should be turned in electronically through blackboard by midnight on the dates listed on the syllabus (TRQ Block # x on the syllabus). Examinations: There will be four closed-book exams that will cover reading, lecture, and all in-class material. These exams will begin at the start of the class period and no notes or other supports will be allowed. The format of these exams will be true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blanks, matching, labeling diagrams, short answers and anything else I can think of. Due to the nature of the material, all exams should be considered cumulative in content.
Course grades will be based on the total points accumulated from four exams, by completing the online lab assignments, and completing the textbook review question assignments. Grades will be calculated based on earned points/total points x100.
