Class Preparation

IF you wear contact lenses, please make sure to bring your glasses to this class.  Techniques can not be effectively learned on contact wearers.

Be sure you understand the following words and, as applicable, know precisely where these structures are located in the body:

- Meninges of the cranium, dural attachments, falx cerebri (cerebral falx), falx cerebelli (cerebellar falx), tentorium cerebelli

- CSF, arachnoid villi, choroid plexi, brain cisterns

- Main structures of the eye: bony framework of the eye (bones surrounding the eyes), conjunctiva, the 5 layers of the cornea, lens and attachments (suspensory ligaments/zonular fibers), equator of the lens (capsule, lens epithelium, cortex, nucleus), pupil, iris, anterior & posterior chambers, aqueous humor, vitreous humor, iridocorneal angle, ciliary processes and body, cavernous sinus, scleral venous sinus, Schlemm’s canal, ora serrata, choroid, sclera, retina layers, pigmented epithelium, blind spot (optic disc), central retinal artery and vein, superior/inferior temporal/nasal arterioles and venules, superior/inferior macular arterioles and venules, optic nerve, macula, fovea, cones & rods photoreceptors, ganglions cells, bipolar layer, amacrine cells, horizontal cells, other retinal cells, subarachnoid spaces (SAS).

Look for the word “Eye” in the index of your anatomy book (Netter, Clemente, Thieme, etc.). You will have few pages. Be familiar with the eye structures from each of these pages.

In "Netter's Atlas of Human Neuroscience" for example, information related to the eye can be found on pages 233-239 in the first edition (pages 346-356 in the second edition).



You could prepare this class by reading the work of Beryl Arbuckle, DO on the Meninges including her wonderful dural maps:

"The selected writings of Beryl E. Arbuckle, D.O., F.A.C.O.P  by Beryl E Arbuckle",  Published by the National Osteopathic Institute and Cerebral Palsy Foundation (1977).
