Neuroscience Applications to Clinical Practice
January 16, 2013
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Description:
This webinar will review new neuroscience research that applies to clinical practice in neuropsychology, speech pathology, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. The review will cover the physiology and neurochemistry of clinical practice that drives neuroplasticity. Recent research on connectomes (comprehensive map of neural connections in the brain) of language, executive functions, memory, and motor planning will be highlighted with emphasis on rehabilitation of language, cognition, and motor planning.

Neuroscience Applications to Treatment of Attention and Memory Disorders
February 6, 2013
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

Description: Memory and attention disorders pose problems for rehabilitation of stroke and traumatic brain injured patients because of their impact on participation in therapy and effect on carryover during the recovery process. This webinar will review new research on attentional and memory networks in the brain (connectomes) with a focus on how specific therapeutic approaches can enhance selective and divided attention through working memory training. The information will be applicable to all therapeutic disciplines.

Neuroscience Applications to Clinical Practice - Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Apply new research on neural connectomes to differential diagnosis of disorders of language, cognition and motor planning after stroke or brain injury.
Develop comprehensive treatment plans based on neuroscience principles that drive maximal neuroplastic chanage.
Utilize new neuroplasticity research to develop evidence-based goals and methodology for rehabilitation of language, cognition and motor planning.

Neuroscience Applications to Treatment of Attention and Memory Disorders - Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Utilize neuroscience research on attentional networks in the brain for assessment and treatment planning of cognitive impairments after stroke or traumatic brain injury. 
Apply research on working memory and long-term retention to development of evidence-based treatment of cognitive impairments.

Audience: Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Speech-Language Pathologists
