Cursusdoelen
This course aims to instruct the neural basis of the movement and its cooperation with sensory nervous system from the neurophysiological aspects. 
 
At the end of this course a student should be able to comprehend and explain how:
  • the kinesis of ions across the membrane can produce neural information (electrical signal)
  • an electrical signal propagates along a neuron axon
  • the neural information is transformed from one type of signal/information to another (sensory information of photo, mechanical, chemical and thermal stimulation )
  • the neural circuits of eye processes the vision
  • eye detects the location and physical quantities (i.e. size, shape, color, texture, moving direction and speed).
  • the mechanism of the eye movement through the sensory motor integration or interaction
  • the sensory mechanism of ear transforms sound waves to neural signals
  • the vestibular system processes the sensory information to maintain the balance, keep tracking a moving (relatively) object
  • skin receptors sense the texture of the objects
  • muscle sensory system works
  • the neural system controls voluntary and reflex movement.
  • human can walk and chew. The sensory motor mechanism behind sequential movement.
Inhoud
The following topics will be covered:
  • Neuroanatomy
  • Neural signals
  • Neural plasticity
  • Sensory processing
  • Motor function
This course is provided in the 4th semester. Students follow the lectures and practical of Quartile 8 (BMT), only the Neurophysiology part. Besides this, students will be provided extra assignments and study material. The maximum number of ECs is 5. Please contact Dr. S. Utku Yavuz.
