Students should be able to correctly identify the anatomical structures of the brain and describe the major pathways connecting the different parts of the nervous system. They also should acquire an understanding of the functional brain anatomy and brain circuitry and use this knowledge to analyse clinical symptoms and understand the basis of the neurological exam carried out to evaluate patients in the clinic.

Developmental origin of the brain
Anatomical knowledge of brain structure
Functional anatomical knowledge of the brain
