z 5/7-5/8 Neuroanatomy: A Practical Review for Clinicians

$ 650.00

This course taught by Edythe Strand, PhD, CCC-SLP, BC-ANCDS provides an overview of neurological disorders and the neural systems critical to rehabilitation. Discussion focuses on cortical mechanisms, descending tracts, upper and lower motor neuron syndromes, cranial nerves, basal ganglia and cerebellum. The course takes a clinical view by giving a brief overview to a particular neurological system, followed by discussion of the possible disease processes and disorders that would result from damage to the corresponding system.  Participants will review clinical examples of neuroimaging and planes of orientation for both the spinal cord and brain. A number of pathologies are reviewed and conditions focus on speech and language disorders, limb deficits, visual deficits, agnosia and other perceptual deficits resulting from neurologic disease and injury.  Discussion is limited to structures and systems most commonly involved in rehabilitation. Interactive activities will promote clinical application of the material that is covered.
