The course can be used for the Minor with 3 CP (psy141).

Neurocognition is affected in patients with different kinds of brain injury and brain lesions. We plan to introduce the daily activity in neurosurgery to the students with the profile of psychology and neurocognitive psychology.
Neurosurgery includes both non-operative management (eg, prevention, diagnosis—including image interpretation, interpretation of neurocognitive signs, neurological exploration and treatments such as neurocritical intensive care and rehabilitation) and operative management, for example, vascular surgery, functional and restorative surgery, tumor resections, including awake craniotomies and hydrocephalus, including its instrumentation.”
Although neurosurgery is fundamentally a surgical discipline, neurosurgery requires knowledge of psychology, neurology, critical care, trauma care, and neuroradiology.
Some patients require psychological assessment, example: patients with hydrocephalus, patients who suffered a severe brain injury, and patients who undergo large brain tumor operations and patients with require an awake craniotomy to preserve important brain functions.
Neurosurgical subspecialties include pediatric neurosurgery, spine surgery, neuroendovascular, cerebrovascular/skull base, neuro-oncology, pain, peripheral nerve, trauma, and functional neurosurgery. Neurosurgery is one of the most complex areas in medicine and attract some of the best and the brightest physicians. The most competitive neurosurgery departments perform research and interact scientifically with other areas, including psychology.
In this class, we will teach some neuroanatomy relevant for the area, and some examples of disorders of the human nervous system. Participants will see how an operation room works and how we get surgical access to the brain, and the principles of brain surgery.
