Brain Dissection and Neuroscience: Applications to Disorders of Language and Speech Functions

July 31 - August 2, 2014
Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI

Course description

An intensive neuroscience course including neuroanatomical dissections, lectures, study of higher mental functions, and clinical problem solving. This course will provide training in neuroscience applied to higher mental functions and their disorders. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of structural properties, sensorimotor systems, and neurolinguistic organization of the human brain. This learning will be supplemented by the guided brain dissections and neurological problem solving. Participants will also learn about the modern neuroradiological techniques, advances in neurological management of stroke and related syndromes, bioethical issues, neuropsychological concepts, and neurolinguistic implications of various neurosurgical techniques. The faculty will be derived from the disciplines of Neurolinguistics, Neuroscience, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Law, and Neuroradiology.

Brain Views

Who should attend

Any health care professional interested in functional neuroscientific knowledge and its applications to the clinical management of higher mental functions in neurologically impaired individuals. This course and its advanced-intermediate level of presentation is best suited for those with interest in brain-behavior relationship and neurological correlates of higher mental functions.

Comments from past participants

This is far and above the best training I have received in functional neuroanatomy. The hospitality; the lectures by Dr. Bhatnagar and guests; the fast pace and conceptual overview; the neuroscience research conducted by Dr. Bhatnagar and team; the ppt slides; the video; the wet lab dissection, with sample slides, craniotomy, brains to view and hands on investigation and dissection of human brain tissue have provided a full, well-rounded overview of functional neuroanatomy unlike any I have previously received in pre and post doctoral training, classroom behavioral neurology, teaching, web and video based resources in my neuropsychological training or practice. I highly recommend this course to any who are basically literate in neuroanatomy or those with advanced knowledge but no hands on experience. This course evokes the wonder of the CNS architecture.
David Dahl, Ph.D., Psychology, San Jose, CA (2013)

Expect a unique and comprehensive professional development experience. This was first rate! Outstanding value for practitioners and academics.
Judy Montgomery, Ph.D. CCC-SLP. Irvine, CA (2009)

Indispensable for instructors in neurogenic communicative disorders.....Remarkable concentration of encyclopedic material.
