This course will cover the mechanisms and principles of activity dependent neuroplasticity and motor learning. Participants will be presented with the current understanding of neuroplasticity, the factors that modulate it, and evidence-based applications to rehabilitation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
This course is an overall view of neuroplasticity and is a great first course prior to taking other courses in our virtual conference series on neuroplasticity. Course# 3079 (SCI), Course #3081 (CVA), Course #3083 (Vestibular Impairment) and Course #3085 (Degenerative Disease-MS and Parkinson's Disease) are follow-up courses.
