Lesson (50 hours)

Basic knowledge of chemistry and biochemistry. Knowledge of the structure and functions of the cell.

The student will initially have to face a written assessment of the skills included and acquired relating to the topics related to the course program.
The test consists of 10 multiple choice questions, to be solved in 20 minutes. The questions will be inherent to the teaching program of the entire Integrated Course (see program) to define the degree of knowledge (30%), the ability to apply knowledge and understanding (35%) and the learning ability (35%) in relation to the Course program.
To qualify for the oral exam, you must have correctly answered at least 6 questions. Eligibility is considered valid only for admission to the oral exam of the same appeal.
The oral test consists of questions related to the IC teaching program to define the ability to understand (20%), the ability to apply knowledge and understanding (20%), the autonomy of judgment (10%), the ability to learn (20%) and communication skills (30%).
Single final mark out of thirty for the C.I

Voto Finale

Learning the structural organization of the human body from the macroscopical to the microscopical point of view with their anatomical-clinical applications. Recognize the morphological characteristics of systems, organs, tissues, cells and subcellular structures of human organism.

Central Nervous System: Spinal chord: white and grey matter; ascending and descending tracts. Encephalic trunk: encephalic nerves (III-XII) nuclei, reticular formation. Cerebellum: functional subdivisions. Cortex. Diencephalum: talamus, hypotalamus, epytalamus. Telencephalus: structure and lobular subdivision. Basal ganglia and internal capsule. Cortical areas of Broadman, motor and sensibility ways. Olphactory and gustative ways (mentions) Meninx, liquor and ventricular system. Willis circle and cerebral circulation. Ear and vestibular apparatus; acoustic ways and vestibular circuits (mentions). Eye and optical ways (mentions).
Peripheral nervous system:
Ganglia: definition and types. Cranial nerves: definition, organization, origin, course and ramifications. Spinal nerves: origin, course, ramifications, plexuses.
