This course provides students with foundational knowledge on the structure and function of the human nervous system. Students develop a thorough understanding of the development and organisation of the nervous system and its role in higher level cognitive functioning. Students also examine the underlying aetiology and main characteristics of a variety of neurological conditions associated with communication and swallowing disorders. In addition, they learn to explain relevant neurological diagnostic techniques and neurosurgical procedures used to study, assess and treat communication and swallowing disorders of neurogenic origin.
