PHTH 7240 - MOTOR BEHAVIOR

[4 Credits]
This course integrates information from the fields of neuroscience, exercise science, cognitive and sport psychology to build an evidence-based foundation for the evaluation and management of movement dysfunction in physical therapy practice. Students review and debate the evidence and assumptions underlying contemporary theories of motor control and learning. Standardrized clinical tools for the assessment of movement dysfunction and its causes are learned and applied by students in laboratory and clinical settings across a variety of patient populations.
