Lesley Scibora is an Assistant Professor in the Health and Human Performance Department. She earned her Doctor of Chiropractic in 1998 from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, MN and Ph.D. in Kinesiology from the University of Minnesota in 2011, where her research investigated the effects of bariatric surgery for weight loss on aspects of bone health and physical activity. In addition, she has worked in the areas of health promotion and employee wellness as the Health Education Director for Life Time Fitness.

Dr. Scibora’s research interests focus on examining the interrelationships between physical activity, body weight, and bone health. She has presented her research locally, nationally and internationally and is an active member of the American College of Sports Medicine, American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, Obesity Society, and the Minnesota Chiropractic Association.

EXSC 488 - 01 Topics:Functional Neuroanatomy - T W R F - - 0900 - 1100 MHC 211
CRN: 10248 2 Credit Hours Instructor: Lesley M. Scibora This course explores the structure of the human nervous system, along with its functional organization. Students will explore neuroanatomical structures in both the central and peripheral nervous system, including vascular supply of the central nervous system. Clinical cases and real-world scenarios representing a variety of nervous system pathologies will provide a context for understanding functional neuroanatomy. Interactive digital platforms will be used to learn the 3D anatomical structure and organization underlying motor sensory and cognitive functions, along with clinical slides, dissections, and radiographic images. The overarching theme of this course is to emphasize the importance of neuroanatomy knowledge in the health professions. Students interested in pursuing careers in the medicine, allied health, and sports medicine will benefit from this course. Prerequisites: Successful completion of EXSC 213 or BIOL 349 with a grade of C- or better.
