HMB450H1: Neurodevelopmental Diversity and Diseases

Hours

24L/12T

Brain development plays a critical role in human health as early neurological mechanisms provide the foundation for future complex neurological processes. This course will examine how neurodevelopmental differences contribute to neurological diversity, disorders and/or diseases, such as autism, epilepsy, and paediatric multiple sclerosis. Current research from basic, translational, and clinical perspectives will be examined. Case studies, the impact of neurodevelopmental differences, and respect for neurodiversity will be emphasized.
