Course title:Skill Acquisition and Neuroplasticity: Application to the Healthy Adult Populations
Description:In the past 20 years, Neuroscience has made major advances in the understanding of the brain mechanisms involved in the acquisition of skilled performance. It is now known that the potential for central nervous system neuroplasticity exists over an individual’s lifetime and underlies behavioral gains as healthy individuals learn new motor skills. While manual therapy is important for relieving symptoms of musculoskeletal pathology, physical therapists need to come from the perspective that motor learning-induced neuroplasticity will more permanently prevent faulty movement strategies in the performance of daily as well as athletic tasks. This course will explore research in neuroplasticity and provide evidence neuroplastic changes underlying the acquisition of skilled performance.
