Course Description
This two day course provides an overview of the neural systems important to our work in rehabilitation of neurological disorders.    Discussion focuses on cortical mechanisms, descending tracts, upper and lower motor neuron syndromes, cranial nerves, basal ganglia and cerebellum.  A very clinical perspective will be taken, by giving a brief overview of a particular system, followed by discussion of the disease processes and disorders that would result from damage to that system.  Examples of neuroimaging are given.  This course focuses primarily on speech and language disorders, but includes discussion of limb deficits, visual deficits, agnosia and other perceptual deficits resulting from neurologic disease and injury.  Discussion will be limited to structures and systems most commonly involved in rehabilitation. Videotapes of sequelae of neurologic disease will be presented for discussion.

Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Demonstrate understanding of gross neuroanatomy
Describe how damage to specific neural systems results in language, speech, perceptual and motor dysfunction.
Recognize lesion site based on clinical presentation
Identify specific neurologic disease processes by clinical presentation

Who Should Attend
Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Nurses
