Neuro Anatomy Part Two with Dr. Nick Marcer
Dr Nick Marcer, an osteopath, lecturer in Neuro Anatomy and all round nice guy, is back by popular demand to carry on taking a look at neuro’ anatomy and picking up from where we left of in part one.
In this session we’ll be looking at the cranial nerves and how what we do in manual and movement therapy affects them. A big one of interest here is the vagus nerve and Nick will be talking about this wandering nerve, where it goes, what it does and how it affects us on a daily basis. There’s a few myths and misunderstandings about the variation and balances within the Autonomic Nervous System so we’ll clear up a few ideas about sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. The phrenic nerve is another interesting area we’ll be addressing, as this covers the control of the diaphragm and runs very close to the vagus.
As always we’ll be taking questions, looking at some videos, dissection slides and will as usual pack a huge amount of information in to one session.
