Online preparatory modules
Once you register you will receive instant access to a series of high-quality online modules to help you prepare for the attendance course:
These high-quality online modules, narrated by Dr Johns, provide a broad introduction to the structural and functional anatomy of the human brain and include self-test questions at the end of each section.
Hands-On Brain Anatomy Practical
The highly popular practical element provides a unique opportunity to get 'hands on' with preserved human brain specimens.
These session are lead by Dr Johns in the anatomy dissection room, King's College London, with support from a team of expert anatomy demonstrators
The practical component also includes live video demonstrations of human brain anatomy via monitors distributed throughout the dissection room.
This exciting weekend course combines topographical, functional and radiological (MRI) anatomy including hands-on experience with real human brain specimens.
The approach is unlike traditional neuroanatomy courses, emphasising understanding over rote learning, providing a solid three-dimensional understanding of the human brain.
The comprehensive lecture programme gives a firm grasp of the three-dimensional structure of the brain with clinical and functional integration. Attendees find this approach enjoyable and a powerful aid to long-term recall.
The course will be held at King's College London, Guy's Campus (for more information please see the venue page).
