Retrospect 2010

The patrons of the course in 2010.

The patrons of the course in 2010: Torsten Wiesel, Adolph Meyer, The Brain (from “Pinky and The Brain”), David H. Hubel

After six successful years of the “Intensivkurs Neuroanatomie” we fulfilled our desire to establish an English section of our neuroanatomy course, now called “Munich Brain Course”. The focus of the bilingual course was occipital lobe, brainstem and white matter.
