General anatomy. Topographical subdivision of the human body, reference planes and related terminology - surface anatomy, body cavities and visceral spaces. Locomotor system. General information on skeletal, articular and muscular systems; articular and muscular mechanics - General morphology of the main skeletal and muscular districts - In-depth treatment of the skeleton, joints and muscles of the head and neck - Development of the neurocranium and the splanchnocranium Circulatory system. Heart (vasculature and innervation - conduction apparatus) - Pericardium - Arteries, capillaries and veins (general organization of the general and pulmonary blood circulation) - Blood vessels of the head and neck. Lymphatic system. Central and peripheral lymphatic organs - Lymphatics of the head and neck Regional anatomy: head and neck. Oral cavity - Tongue - Teeth - Salivary glands - Nasal and paranasal cavities - Pharynx - Larynx - Development of facial mass - Endocrine system. Pituitary gland and hypophyseal hypothalamus portal system - Thyroid - Parathyroid - Adrenal gland - Endocrine pancreas - Endocrine elements of the testis and ovary. Central nervous system. Structural and functional organization of the nervous system - Development of the central nervous system - Vascularization - Ventricles and cerebrospinal fluid - Meninges - Sensitive systems: functional and topographical anatomy of the somatosensitive pathways - Somatic and visceral sensitivity of the head; functional and topographical anatomy of the trigeminal system - Chemical senses: taste and smell - Motor systems: functional and topographical anatomy of descending motor pathways - Motor nuclei of the cranial nerves - cerebellum - The nuclei of the base - The hypothalamus and the regulation of functions endocrine and visceral (general organization of the autonomic nervous system) - The limbic system and brain circuits for emotions, learning and memory. Peripheral nervous system. Cranial nerves functionally and topographically linked to the facial massif (trigeminal - facial - glossopharyngeal - hypoglossal) Macro and microscopic morphofunctional aspects of: - Respiratory system (macroscopic and structural aspects of the upper and lower airways, morphofunctional anatomy of the lungs and pleurae); digestive (macroscopic and structural aspects of the alimentary canal and of the attached glands, with particular reference to the control of digestive processes and intestinal motility); - urinary (macro and microscopic aspects of the kidney and urinary tract with particular reference to the anatomical bases of the production of urine and urination) - reproductive.
