Prerequisite: Successful completion of previous courses in the DPT curriculum.
This course provides and integrative, but concise study of the normal structure and function of the human central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying nervous system dysfunction presented as clinical correlations. This study will provide students with a basis for physical therapy examination, evaluation, and intervention for patients with neurological involvement. Didactic presentations will be supplemented by laboratory sessions to increase understanding of the three dimensional anatomy of the central nervous system.(A laboratory fee of $100 assessed.)
