PSYC 375  Neuroanatomy                                            3 credits
A self-paced, clinically oriented introduction to human neuroanatomy based on the "programmed" text Neuroanatomy by Sidman and Sidman. The text is self-contained and has no lectures or regular class meetings. Because the "programmed" text involves a series of questions and responses, it is impossible to read without having a high degree of comprehension and competence. Students learn the basic structures of the brain and spinal cord and how to diagnose and localize the site of various neuropathologies. While the class is not a substitute for a comprehensive neuroanatomy course complete with dissections, it is the best introduction to clinical neuroanatomy, a topic of great importance to psychology, the biomedical sciences, and clinical practice. Success on the exam requires many hours of daily effort. Students needing additional time to complete the text are encouraged to begin reading before the first class meeting. The class meets only twice-- first, for an introduction session on January 3 and second, on January 27 for the exam, which is directly based on material from the text. Contact the instructor for on-line consultation at provine@umbc.edu.
