Students develop a thorough understanding of the development and organisation of the nervous system and its role in higher level cognitive functioning.

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.
