    OVERVIEW

    The teaching of Anatomy of the Locomotor system (1 CFU, 10 hours) is held in the first semester of the first year of the course indicatively starting from the first fortnight of November.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The teaching of Neuroanatomy aims to provide students with an adequate knowledge of the central and peripheral nervous system both anatomically and functionally, and its relationship with the structures of the locomotor system that are presented during the course. The ultimate goal of the course is to provide students with a good understanding of the different structures of the nervous system and how they are interconnected for proper functioning. The comprehension of the topics covered in class will allow the student to deepen further specific topics in complete autonomy.

    TEACHING METHODS

    The teaching activity will consist of 10 hours of lectures, during which, with the use of visual aids, will be illustrated and discussed with the students all the topics that require knowledge at the time of the final examination.

    If the pandemic situation persists, lessons could be held on the Teams online platform.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    General organization of the nervous system.

    Meninges and cavities.

    The spinal cord: external and internal configuration. Organization of gray matter and white matter.

    Brain stem: external and internal configuration. Main nuclei of the bulb (gracile nucleus, cuneate nucleus, inferior olivar nucleus), of the bridge (nuclei proper to the bridge) and of the midbrain (red nucleus, black substance). The quadrigemine plate. The reticular formation.

    Cerebellum organization: external and internal configuration. Cerebellar nuclei and cortex.

    Diencephalus: organization of the thalamus, subthalamic, hypothalamus and epithalamus.

    Telencephalon: external configuration (lobes, cleavages and gyrus). Structure of the telencephalic cortex. Telencephalic nuclei. Organization of the white substance. Generality on the limbic system. Functional subdivision of the telencephalon (associative, sensitive, effector, language areas). Internal configuration of the telencephalon: white matter, telencephalic nuclei.

    Afferent systems. The receptors of external and proprioceptive sensitivity. The pathways of general sensitivity (spino-bulbo-thalamus-cortical pathways, spino-cerebellar pathways, spino-thalamus-cortical pathways). Specific sensitivity pathways: optical pathways (direct, reflex), vestibular pathways, acoustic pathways.

    Effector systems. Motor control pathways: pyramidal and non-pyramidal pathways (definition of base nuclei).

    Peripheral nervous system: spinal nerves

    Posterior and posterior branches of the spinal nerves

    Peripheral nervous system: organization of the cervical plexus, brachial plexus, intercostal nerves, lumbar plexus, sacral plexus, pudendo plexus, coccygeal plexus

    Peripheral nervous system: encephalic nerves and relationship with the nuclei of the brain stem with particular reference to the n. trigeminal, facial, oculomotor, abducent and trochlear.

    Sympathetic nervous system: orthosympathetic and parasympathetic.

    LESSONS

    LESSONS START

     The lessons will start in the first semester in accordance with the didactic calendar

    Class schedule

    All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.

    EXAMS

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral exam.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    During the exam will be evaluated the communicative skills of the student, through which he will have to demonstrate to know the different structures of the nervous system treated in class and to have understood the anatomical-functional relationships.

    The student to pass the exam, then report a grade of not less than 18/30.

    For this module, students must demonstrate:

    • Knowing the basics of the neuroanatomy

    • Describe  and recognizing the morphology and role of the organs of the nervous system

    • Apply the knowledge acquired to the anatomical/functional role of the physiotherapist

    According to article L.170/10 'New rules on specific learning disabilities in schools', active support services for students with a specific learning disorder through il Settore Servizi di supporto alla disabilità e agli studenti con DSA are active. Contact person Prof. Nicola Girtler (nicolagirtler@unige.it)

    FURTHER INFORMATION

    The teacher receives the students by appointment (to make the request write to daniele.saverino@unige.it).
