Neuroanatomy is admittedly complex and overwhelming. Clinicians working in rehabilitation are faced with growing caseloads, diminished resources/reimbursement, and increasingly medically complex patients with the expectation of improving outcomes and reducing length of stay. Honing knowledge of clinically-relevant neuroanatomy and neuropathology can predict dysfunction and intuitively create a scaffold for assessment and treatment even before meeting the patient. Predetermining potential deficits leads to a more tightly defined diagnostic battery and expedites treatment formulation. By deducing the patient’s experience, the clinician can also prepare for behavioral barriers to engagement and understand the healing process with greater compassion.
In this one-day seminar, participants will learn intermediate level neurophysiology as it relates to cognitive-linguistic skills and behavioral control, as well as explore mindfulness techniques for stress reduction. The overlying foci of the course are to arm treating professionals with an improved clinical eye, predicting dysfunction, and expedite the pathway to treatment. Course content will also include patient-focused educational materials for stroke and traumatic brain injury ready to utilize by treating practitioners.
• Categorize the anatomy and function of lobes of the brain as they apply to behavioral control.
• Characterize the neurophysiology of memory and effect of fear/anger upon new learning and memory.
• Analyze the effect of traumatic and non-traumatic injuries upon cognitive centers.
• Connect neurotransmitters with the communication system within the brain.
• Evaluate the optic system and lesion locations that affect engagement and accuracy in therapy.
• Recommend simple neuroanatomy-based techniques to rapidly de-escalate stress for patients and caretakers.
• Assess neuro-behavioral barriers that impact new learning.
