810 / 910 – Lobes of the Brain:
Review the basic functions and structures associated with the frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital lobes. Methodology involving the use of optokinetic stimulations and other brain based diagnostics and therapeutics will be reviewed.
The idea of localized function in the brain has come under scrutiny over the past few years. It is being replaced by a more integrated approach of lobular function. This being said there are still areas in the brain that specialize in function and this information is invaluable to the clinician in being able to accurately diagnose a patient’s condition.
This course will teach you:
- The neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of each Lobe of the Brain
- The function of each lobe
- The motor function that can be clinically measured to ascertain each lobe.
- Environmental stimuli that show specificity to each Lobe
- The clinical conditions associated with dysfunction of each Lobe
- How lobular dysfunction contributes to the onset and promotion of the musculoskeletal system
The teaching methodology at the Carrick Institute is a blend of theory and applicable skills in the clinical setting. Concepts are taught with supportive demonstrations and clinical mastery application opportunities An active and conversational learning environment is encouraged where questions are asked and points of view are openly discussed. One’s mind is challenged with the presentation of modern paradigms to create the world’s best clinicians.
