Learn about neuronal networks and how they are organized in the human brain. Each lecture will begin with an introduction to a basic neuroscience topic, followed by a discussion of related clinical concepts. We will also cover the use of modern technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), that reveal both functioning of the normal brain and changes due to disease or injury. There is no prerequisite.
