PHTH 7141 - NEUROSCIENCES I

[1 Credit]
This course is a continuation of PHTH 7140: Physical Therapy Neuroanatomy with a special focus on normal neurological anatomy and physiology that is vitally pertinent to physical therapy practice. The course will also look at minor pathophysiology of the nervous system in order for the learner to better understand the body’s normal response to injury as well as introducing the nervous system’s mechanisms of neuroplasticity. The student will also be introduced to the neurological screen and exam as a way to apply the content covered in the different exams and to help integrate this material with co-requisite coursework.
