More information

 

This exciting online programme provides a detailed overview of human brain anatomy presented in a very clear and accessible way. It is unlike traditional neuroanatomy courses, emphasising understanding over rote learning.


The comprehensive programme gives a firm grasp of the three-dimensional structure of the brain with clinical and functional integration, which students find enjoyable - and a powerful aid to long-term recall.

Read a review

 

The following comments are from three UK neurosurgical trainees who attended the video dissection course in 2015.

“an excellent course that I will certainly recommend it to my colleagues. The live dissection format is ideal from a neurosurgical perspective as you learn the exact relations of structures in situ as they are dissected from each other. It would be perfect for trainees in the first few years of training to give them a broad overview of neuroanatomy, and also useful later for revision.” -Patrick Grover, Neurosurgery ST6, North Thames Deanery Rotation

“an excellent course and I got a great deal out of it. The course covered a lot of ground, it was well delivered and very interactive. Dr Johns step-by-step review of different parts of the brain using videos of brain dissection helped me gain a much better understanding of the structures. The videos were outstanding! Dr Johns is an expert at teaching neuroanatomy. He is enthusiastic about teaching, an excellent speaker and very approachable. I would highly recommend this course to other neurosurgical trainees or anyone interested in learning neuroanatomy.” -Kapil Rajwani, Neurosurgery ST1, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust

“At under £300 for a weekend (hence no need to use up study or annual leave) this is a cheap and accessible alternative to a cadaveric course and consists of talks based around HD videos of brain dissections performed by a neuropathologist, covering all the surface anatomy of the hemispheres, then brainstem, vessels, basal ganglia, white matter tracts and hippocampal region in increasing detail. It would serve as an excellent primer for ST1-3 trainees or as exam revision for those nearer the end of training." -Zakaria Rashid, Neurosurgery ST4, Mersey Deanery

Course Programme

This exciting neuroanatomy video dissection course is ideal for anyone who wants to improve and consolidate their knowledge of human brain anatomy and build a better three-dimensional understanding of brain structure.

During the two day lecture programme, focussed anatomical review sessions are paired with numerous high quality video demonstrations of real human brain dissections with live expert commentary.

Includes: surface anatomy of the cerebral hemispheres and limbic lobe; deep cerebral white matter (using traditional "blunt dissection"); dissections of the hippocampus, fornix, ventricles, basal ganglia, internal capsule and thalamus.
