Clinical neuroanatomy principles are directly applicable to physical therapist patient care. A review of neuroanatomy structures relative to common neurologic diagnoses treated by physical therapists will strengthen clinician skills in neurologic differential diagnoses and neurologic examination and treatment. 4CCUs

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

1. Discuss the neuroanatomical structures and cerebral blood supply related to stroke.
2. Compare the functional and anatomical relationships of the ascending sensory and descending motor pathways related to spinal cord injury.
3. Describe the functional and anatomical composition of the basal ganglia related to Parkinson’s Disease.
