Event description

Description

A 2 day course covering theoretical and practical applications in neurorehabilitation.

This is a 2-day course exploring the current scientific theories around motor

learning in health and the injured brain, with a particular focus on motor learning

post stroke. Participants will further their understanding of learning and memory

by discussing how this may develop on a range of levels (cellular, molecular,

systems and behavioural). Key research in learning dependent changes post stroke

will be critically appraised, and factors that promote and impede motor learning

will be examined. Interactive workshops, case study examples and discussions of

leading treatments will provide opportunities for participants to consider how to

apply the principles of experience dependent plasticity and task orientated practice,

in order to maximise motor learning in the various clinical settings. This course is

suitable for physiotherapists and occupational therapist with an interest in

neurological rehabilitation. The course looks at Factors which promote and impede motor learning and task orientated reach training, dosage prescription and how to plan and implement treatment to promote ML in clinical practice.
