Course Description

Explore the Breadth, Depth and Application of Clinical Neuroscience

The clinical neuroscience program (CNS) is a comprehensive, evidence-based series of modules which come together to teach the breadth, depth, and application of clinical neuroscience.

What is Breadth? Throughout the CNS program, scholars will be taught on subject material that is common to all healthcare professionals and needed for the diagnosis and recognition of neurological dysfunction. This includes the neuroanatomy, the physiology and the pathology of the nervous system and related systems.

What is Depth? Building upon the breadth of neuroscience, the depth of the CNS program allows practitioners clarity into the clinical thought process and neurophysiology as it relates to the scholar’s specific profession. Our programs are taught at a depth that allows clinicians to be more specific in the assessment, diagnosis, integration, and recognition of the various systems that influence disorders of humankind.

What is Application?: Building upon the breadth and depth of the field of clinical neuroscience, the CNS program dives deep into the physical and functional neurorehabilitation strategies that are specific to the practitioner when applying a functional neurology paradigm of care.

Breadth, depth and application is what allows for clinical mastery.

The clinician of the future will develop individualized neurophysiological approaches of care for their patients.

In embryology and physiology of the nervous system, you will learn the pertinent anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the neuron as well the embryological development of the nervous system. You will learn techniques to allow you to appropriately assess and diagnosis the common conditions related to embryological development and neuronal stability. Clinical applications will be discussed for patients with these conditions. This course provides the foundational framework for the use of manual and brain-based therapies in the treatment of neurological disease.

This exciting module begins by focusing on the concepts in embryological development of the peripheral and central nervous systems. Emphasis will be placed on discussing the pros and cons of both the columnar and prosomeric models of cortical organization.  Physiological function of nerves will be reviewed with an emphasis on the clinical scenarios seen with metabolic deregulation. The influence of early sensory input to the development of thalamo cortical projections preserved throughout adulthood will be discussed in relationship to the effects of sensory deprivation on neurological integrity through out life.  This module provides learners with the foundation needed for ongoing studies in our Clinical Neuroscience series.
