  • 1. PREVIEW SYLLABUS ONLY (Subject to change and update in the online format) ASLS 555-900 Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology of Communication (3) Course Overview and Guidelines It is essential that you read and study all of the required chapters and study the diagrams carefully. The content of this course is not particularly difficult but you will learn many new neural systems and their relationships with other systems. Along the way, you will learn at least 1,000 new content-specific vocabulary words. The text is an important guide in this process, so read it carefully. After you complete each chapter, you will visit one or more web sites that display either actual photos of, or improved imaging of, the brain structures or systems discussed at length in the text. The resources on the Web are incredible. Move back and forth between the web-based presentations and the materials covered in your text. It's an amazing adventure. I will provide additional comments for each topic as well as study questions as we go along, both of which will help you prepare for the exams. While studying for the course exams, I would suggest you try drawing pictures and diagrams of some of the structures and systems. Be sure to complete each chapter and all activities. We will not study every portion of every chapter as a class, but you will need to know all the material covered by the text. When completing assignments, please use current references from print and web site sources. Complete each assignment with care. Research the topics well and provide a complete response. Current references are important. Use APA for your referencing. There will be three objective exams within the course. In addition you will complete 10 assignments. You can work at your own rate. Let me know if you have questions. I try to respond to e-mail within 24 hours; however, if you don't hear back from me right away, be patient; I will answer. If there is some way I can improve the course, let me know. If you would like to call me rather than using e- mail, my phone number is (970) 351-1598. Remember, we are in this learning endeavor together. Finally, probably the most important thing to remember about this course, and life in general, is to have fun and learn a lot.

Special Needs/Disability Accommodation Statement Students who believe that they may need accommodations in this course are encouraged to contact the Disability Access Center at 970.351.2289 as soon as possible to ensure that accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion. Academic Conduct Statement When you enroll in a UNC course through Independent Study, you become subject to certain expectations and policies concerning your academic conduct. Definitions and details are available in the UNC Student Handbook, which can be viewed on the web at http://www.unco.edu/dos/handbook/stuhndbk.pdf. Selected paragraphs from the sections on Academic Expectations Related to Student Conduct and Disciplinary Actions and Procedures are printed here. In order to encourage and foster academic excellence, the University expects students to conduct themselves in accordance with certain generally accepted norms of scholarship and professional behaviors. Because of this expectation, the University does not condone any form of academic misconduct. Academic misconduct includes but is not limited to plagiarism, cheating, fabrication, and knowingly or recklessly encouraging or making possible any act of plagiarism, cheating, or fabrication. Academic misconduct is an unacceptable activity in scholarship and is in conflict with academic and professional ethics and morals. Consequently, students who are judged to have engaged in some form of academic misconduct may be subject to (1) a zero or an "F" on the work in question, (2) an "F" in the course, (3) other academic penalties as outlined in the professor's course requirements and expectations, (4) disciplinary action as specified in the Sanctions for Misconduct section below [please refer to the handbook], or (5) any combination thereof. Procedural due process, including the right to appeal, is to be followed in making a determination of whether academic misconduct has occurred. Students who violate University Standards of Conduct are subject to disciplinary action. The administration of this action shall provide procedural fairness to an accused student or recognized student organization. The procedure will afford appropriate process which will be educational and developmental in nature. An adversarial relationship between the accused and the University will be avoided.

These services include remote access to electronic resources, instruction in the use of libraries and library resources, reference assistance, and access to/delivery of library materials not available in local area libraries. See www.unco.edu/library/distance/online.htm for details. Students who live within the 50-mile radius are expected to visit the UNC Michener Library in person. To borrow materials from the Michener Library in person, bring positive identification

When there is a choice, you should use an academic library since it is more likely to have the indexes and other resources you will need for college-level research. Because many libraries now provide dial-in access, you can search various library databases from your own home or business, at your own convenience, if you have access to a computer with a modem. If the materials you need are not available in your local area libraries or if you need additional assistance, contact the UNC Michener Library. When placing requests, please remember to include the complete citation information. Check the UNC online catalog (for books or journals) or UnCover (for journals) to make sure that UNC owns an item before you request it. Not only will this speed up the process, it will ensure that the materials you want are available through UNC. You may request materials 24x7 by „X e-mailing library.ocp@unco.edu „X faxing 970.351.2540 For other library assistance and instruction, phone 970.351-2562.
