Main themes
Key topics to meet these objectives. The description of the neurophysiological basis of pain perception. Nervous mechanisms and functioning of inter-hemispheric interactions and their role in motor control. The main mechanisms of nervous motor control areas by frontal and parietal cortex. The neurophysiological basis of memory and learning. The description of the phenomenon of plasticity in the central nervous system and their mechanisms.
Aims
At the end of this entity of education, students should be able to understand the foundations of science in neuroscience through the study of nervous mechanisms particularly suited to the neurological rehabilitation. It should also be able to undertake the critical reading of a scientific article published in the field of neuroscience.

The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
