Sotgiu, Maria Alessandra; Mazzarello, Vittorio; Bandiera, Pasquale; Madeddu, Roberto; Montella, Andrea; Moxham, Bernard – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Neuroanatomy has been deemed crucial for clinical neurosciences. It has been one of the most challenging parts of the anatomical curriculum and is one of the causes of "neurophobia," whose main implication is a negative influence on the choice of neurology in the near future. In the last decades, several educational strategies have been…
