390 Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences—Department of Occupational Therapy OTD 8112—Neuroscience and Occupation, Lecture This is a neuroanatomy course to introduce occupational therapy students to the study of the human nervous system’s structures, pathways, connections, and functions. It introduces the student to basic anatomical principles of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system. This will serve as the foundation for understanding many conditions and will help students apply this knowledge in treating and educating patients with neurological disorders and neurocognitive disorders and their impact on occupation and participation.
