PT 605 Motor Learning/Motor Control 3 sem. hrs.
This course is the second within a series of four presenting an integrated approach to relevant therapeutic concepts expressly applicable to entry-level neurologic physical therapy practice. Using knowledge introduced in Foundations of Neuroscience (functional neuroanatomy), this course is designed to develop preliminary and foundational knowledge of the principles of motor control and learning as they apply to healthy individuals and ultimately to persons with pathology. Additionally, motor control will be explored briefly across development, with an emphasis on reflexes and functional postures. This foundational knowledge will form a framework for both assessment and treatment of the neurologically involved child or adult, serving as a translational course expanding on relevant aspects of neuroscience, and a transitional course preliminary to participation in PT 730, PT 731, and PT 742.
