COURSE DESCRIPTION

 This course presents information for the practicing clinician to understand the concepts of motor behavior, its evolution as a field of study, and methodology for studying motor performance. The course provides motor control theory as it pertains to both the sensory contributions to motor control and the central nervous system contributions to motor control. Principles of motor learning will also be explored. The effect of the individual, the task and the environment on motor learning will be examined as a framework to apply motor learning principles to those with selected impairments in various patient populations.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
At the end of this course attendees will be able to…

 

1. Define motor control and discuss the relevance to the clinical treatment of patients with movement pathology.
2. Define what is meant by the theories of motor control and motor learning, and describe the value of theory to clinical practice.
3. Define the requirements for learning.
4. Discuss how factors related to the individual, the task, and the environment affect the organization, learning, and control of movement.
5. Discuss the difference between parallel and hierarchical processing in motor control and give examples of each.
6. Describe the anatomical connections and functional contributions to movement control for each of the major components of the brain. 
7. Define plasticity and discuss its relationship to recovery of function.
8. Discuss age-related changes in motor learning without neurological deficit and apply strategies to intervention based on these characteristics. 
9. Apply the principles of motor control and motor learning to the intervention of select conditions.
10. Determine how the learning capabilities of an individual with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, or subcortical CVA affects intervention.
 

INTENDED FOR: PTs, PTAs, OTs, COTAs, SLPs, Nurses
