Neuroscience Review for the Therapy Professional

Neuroscience Review for the Therapy Professional
Event on 2018-03-21 16:30:00
Review neurologic structures and functions, how these are affected by neurologic deficits, and the impact on an individual's functional performance! Course Description: This intermediate level live (in-person) course will provide a concise review of the theoretical concepts from neuroscience highlighting key structures and functions of the human nervous system. The structure of the course will consist of an integrated systems format presenting the relationships among the motor, somatosensory, cognitive, visual, and vestibular systems as well as cortical and subcortical processing describing the normal nervous system. Theoretical knowledge of these neuroscience concepts will be detailed for the therapy practitioner and  in order for them to identify what specific neuroscience concepts are used as the basis for therapy practice guidelines, specifically the assessment and intervention of individuals with neurologic dysfunction. This course is designed for OT, PT, OTA, PTA, and SLP professionals.  The following areas will be presented: 1) Motor system components comprising cortical and subcortical motor functions, 2) Sensory and motor system integration comprising the relationships among somatosensory receptors, spinal cord pathways, subcortical brain regions and cortical hierarchical processing, 3) Visual system pathways comprising visual reception, visual reflexes, and oculomotor control, 4) Vestibular system pathways comprising the integration of systems for adequate postural control and visual and vestibular integration, and 5) Cognitive and perceptual systems and the integration with lower and higher brain processing. The deductive reasoning process will be presented in terms of how to apply basic science concepts in neuroscience by: 1) identifying normal neurologic structures and functions, 2) delineating how these structures and functions are affected by neurologic deficits, 3) identifying the necessary neurologic evaluation methods for determining levels of severity of neurologic deficits, and 4) identifying the resultant effects on the individual's functional performance. Additionally, clinical examples will be discussed in order to begin to identify the typical sequelae or disease processes of various neurologic conditions addressed by therapy practitioners. Neurologic conditions will be detailed with a breakdown of how the specific neurologic structures are affected relative to levels of severity of underlying deficit areas. Subsequently, problem areas will be discussed and presented as well as literature supporting various concepts that reflect current practice with individuals with neurologic deficits.  Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to: Identify foundation neuroscience concepts and postulates forming the bases for occupational therapy intervention and neurorehabilitation frames of reference. Identify the complex integration of the motor, sensory, vestibular, visual and cognitive systems and the effect of this complexity on functional performance. Demonstrate understanding of the deductive reasoning process required when applying neuroscience concepts to the evaluation and treatment of individuals with neurologic deficits.
