AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Knowledge and deepening of the physiological knowledge of the foot.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide the fundamental knowledge on the functions performed by the main structures of the nervous system and on the underlying physiological mechanisms in order to offer a physiological reference framework with which to interpret the role played by these structures in the neurophysiological mechanisms related to podology.

Regarding the parameters of:

To Know:

At the end of the course, the student will know:

- the principles of functioning of the nervous system;

- the appropriate physiological terminology and the essential parameters for evaluating the components of the nervous system present in the program.

To Know-how:

At the end of the course the student will know how:
- to integrate the knowledge of Biochemistry and Human Anatomy in a more general framework on the function of the nervous system.

The student at the end of the course will have acquired the tools to evaluate the neurophysiological mechanisms related to podology.

TEACHING METHODS

The course includes lectures.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The nervous system: somatic sensations; pain and analgesia; the motor systems of the brain; reflex and voluntary control of posture and movement; the vestibular system; locomotion; motor functions of the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Oral exam.  The oral exam, lasting about twenty minutes, involve one question  asked by one teachers of the commission. The grade will be mediated with the one of Human Physiology as regards the Physiology course of the Physiology and Biochemistry integrated course.

 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The oral exam aims to verify the basic knowledge of the components of the central nervous system present in the program. Language properties, clarity of presentation, consequentiality of reasoning and analytical capacity are also evaluated.
