Neurology Primer: Tonotopic Maps

Presented by: Dr. Jonathan Arkin

Neurology Primer: Tonotopic Maps

This neurology primer is perfect for the beginner, who is interested in neurology and wants to effectively and efficiently be implementing a neurological approach in their clinical practice. For veterans of neurology, this course will explore an often underutilized and neglected system in the brain. Grow your skills with this streamlined and efficiently minded sojourn through the brain’s auditory system. In this course, we will explore the brain’s mechanism of localizing and processing sound. Sound is critical to patients dealing with: 

  • Balance issues 
  • Migraine 
  • Anxiety
  • Postural Problems 
  • Concussion 
  • Memory 

Get a beautiful understanding of the auditory pathways in the brain, learn extremely effective evaluation and treatment skills focusing on the auditory system, and learn how to integrate this new information with your existing clinical skills to better serve your patients. 

Topics Covered:

  • The auditory link to anxiety and balance disorders
  • Mapping in the brain.
  • Tonotopic mapping evaluation
  • Tonotopic mapping treatment
  • Retinotopic mapping evaluation
  • Somatotopic mapping evaluation
  • Peripheral auditory anatomy and physiology
