neurophysiology in the peculiar context of oral bioscience
through description of the main structures and functions of the
central nervous system, together with their topographical
relationships, and the cranial nerves.
Interdisciplinary educational topics include pain transmission, neurotransmitters, theories of pain perception, and treatment procedures for patients suffering from acute or chronic pain and major neurological deficits. Consideration is given to the use of drugs, biofeedback, and interventional procedures for pain management. Students will simulate and practice the use of local anesthesia.
The course has been designed to highlight the relevance of the basic concepts of biostatistics to oral epidemiology and dental research. The course will make the students realize the importance of the role of biostatistics in monitoring the global and regional trends in the distribution of oral disorders and planning oral health care services. The course content will facilitate students in acquiring skills of drawing inferences from experimental data and of evaluating the statistics presented in scientific papers. The course will include hands-on training for handling SPSS program.
