Course Description

This on-line module will provide functional neurologic applications in the diagnosis and treatment of disturbances of brain function, using manual techniques and neurological rehabilitation strategies. The functional neurologic components will be covered in an easy and understandable way while exploring the neuroanatomy and physiology of the lobes of the brain.  We will divide the left and right half of the brain and analyse the functions of the frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital lobe. What are the implications of under- or over activity?  How do the lobes communicate with one another and what is the blood supply?  We will give a condensed review highlighting the most important aspects.  Topics include:

  • Neuron theory
  • Neuroplasticity
  • Hemisphericity concept
  • Optokinetic testing
  • Blind spot mapping
  • Cortical stimulation/inhibition
  • Autonomic controls
  • Apps for patient self management
