Virginia: Brain Injuries – a Lawyer’s Course

placeholder image big

During July 16-18, 2015, Mr. Waterman attends “Neuroanatomical Dissection Course: Human Brain and Spinal Cord” at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The course principally is designed for practitioners and educators in psychology, medicine, neuroscience, physiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation engineering, and anatomy; and qualifies for 21 hours of continuing education credit for certain healthcare providers.

This unique provocative Marquette experience features 12 hours of regional dissections of actual embalmed human neuro-matter: surface anatomy vascular systems and meninges, deep white matter pathways, limbic system, basal ganglia and thalamus, brain stem and cerebellium, spinal cord, and reviews of brain coronal sections, cranial nerves, histology, and neuroanatomy. It also provides 9 exciting hours of lecture, slide, video, computer animation, and microscopic presentations covering recent advances in the following functional neuroscience: all regional dissection areas, spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, addiction research, obesity, neurobiology of schizophrenia and depressive illnesses, PTSD, traumatic brain injury, CNS diagnostic imaging, CNS pathology clinical correlates, and chemical neuroanatomy.

Neuroanatomical Dissection’s faculty is compromised by neuroscientists and clinicians qualified and experienced as neuroanatomical instructions, including its Course Director, who earned his doctorate in neuroscience from The University of Virginia. Mr. Waterman expects his successful completion of this enriching experience to be invaluable for all brain injury and some wrongful death cases he handles for victims
