PHTH 204 - Neurophysiology and Motor Learning


(TP/SS only)

In-depth review of neurological physiology, anatomy, and pathology and an introduction to motor control and motor learning throughout the lifespan. Course content will focus on developing sufficient foundational knowledge to work with neurological pathology encountered in physical therapy practice, and with geriatric and pediatric populations. PREREQUISITE(S): PHTH 101 , PHTH 102 , PHTH 103 , PHTH 104 , PHTH 105 , PHTH 106 , PHTH 112 , PHTH 113 , PHTH 114 , PHTH 116 , and PHTH 201 . COREQUISITE(S): PHTH 205 , PHTH 206 , and PHTH 223 . Two hours each week.

2 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:

  • Describe anatomy of the normal neuromotor systems.
  • Describe physiology of the normal neuromotor systems.
  • Describe normal developmental milestones across the lifespan.
  • Describe popular theories of motor learning and motor control.
  • Interpret findings from standard tests and measures of arousal, mentation, and cognition.
  • Analyze the impact of common neurological pathology on the achievement of developmental milestones.
  • Analyze the impact of common neurological pathology on motor control and motor learning.
  • Analyze impact of common neurological pathology on arousal, mentation, and cognition.
  • Create clinical interventions for individuals with neurological pathology based on the diagnosis, treatment goals, and physical therapy plan of care.
