Neuroscience Syllabus for Basic Medical Sciences Course

Neuroscience is a comprehensive lecture and laboratory course that provides an integrated multidisciplinary study of the structure and functional relationships of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Essential to a proper understanding of Neurosciences is the ability to classify, correlate, associate and link the various entities and modules, much the same way as normal human cognition works in real life. This subject assumes basic knowledge of anatomy of Head and Cranial nerves. The syllabus is divided into easily understandable modules based on Snell’s chapter, supplemented by Board Review Series. Neurobiology and neurophysiology, brain metabolism, and the effects of damage and disease on cells of the central nervous system are covered in detail in the initial part of the course.... Show More

I have used this material for 6 years in Neuroscience classes in Medical schools in 2 different countries - Seychelles and St. Kitts-Nevis. Using this material, Basic Science Medical student's average grade in National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Shelf Exam in Neuroscience reached a peak of 480 (3-digit NBME score), with a Median value of 493 (3-digit NBME score) in the Fall of 2011. This is close to US National average figure.
