Course Description

Explore the Breadth, Depth and Application of Clinical Neuroscience

The clinical neuroscience program (CNS) is a comprehensive, evidence-based series of modules that 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 neuroanatomy, 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.


Description:

The ocular motor system is that part of the CNS, which functions mainly in maintaining visual stability and controlling eye movements. It is made up of many brain areas that cooperate to stabilize images of interest on the high-acuity part of the retina. All these systems must funnel through the same final common pathway through the brainstem. This module discusses the structures of the brain and brainstem that produce various eye movements with focus on their central connectivity. Ocular examination techniques along with their diagnostic interpretations will be reviewed. The goal is to create individualized ocular rehabilitative strategies for each clinical entity observed.
