The 3-day class will address all of the following critical topics:
  • Evolution of basal ganglionic development
  • How to clinically assess the basal ganglia
  • 3 groups of descending motor pathways
  • Medial vs lateral motor systems
  • 8 ways the basal ganglia contributes to movement
  • Role of the basal ganglia in control of posture and locomotion
  • Basal ganglia and its relationship to eye movements
  • Neurotransmitters and their interaction with the basal ganglia
  • The 3 pathways in the basal ganglia (direct, indirect, and hyperdirect) and their relevance towards rehabilitation
  • Understanding the phasic input and tonic output concept of the basal ganglia
  • Having the ability to link movement disorders to basal ganglionic structures
  • Single vs complex joint movement on basal ganglionic activity
  • The context-dependent role of the basal ganglia
  • Understanding 4 basal ganglia syndromes that cause behavioral problems
  • The relationship between the basal ganglia and drug addiction
  • The basal ganglia’s relationship with the limbic system
  • Role of the basal ganglia on habit learning and memory
  • Deep brain stimulation as an emerging tool for movement disorders and implications towards neurorehabilitation
  • Understanding the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease, multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, essential tremor, task-specific tremor, Huntington’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, myoclonic disorders, and dystonia.
After this module, you will have a firm graph on the understanding of functional neuroanatomy and physiology in relation to patients with basal ganglionic disorders. This information will translate into assessment and applied clinical neuroscience treatment techniques that you can then incorporate with your patients.
