Course Description

In this course, you will be getting an introduction to neuroanatomy terms and principles that are relevant for teachers and students wanting to go on to learn any movement or therapy discipline.

It will give you an introductory understanding of the neurological system and its contribution to movement, posture, reflexes, pain and learning. It is intended to provide a bridge for people working in the movement industry who require a better understanding of basic neurological concepts as they work with clients with conditions of the neurological system. This course could be considered a precursor for those students wanting to explore and participate in more detailed courses about neurological conditions.

The student will gain an understanding of:
// the structures of the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS) and the relevance to movement principles

// the differences between the afferent and efferent divisions of the CNS

// the differences between the somatic, autonomic and enteric nervous systems and the relevance to movement principles

// identification of the lobes of the brain, the role they have in movement, motor learning and motor memory, and how this relates to client understanding and programming in a movement studio setting

// the structures of a neuron – including axon, dendrite and soma

// the different types of reflexes – namely simple reflexes or conditioned (acquired) reflexes

// which diseases and conditions are associated with specific parts of the brain (more detailed understanding of these would be covered in other courses)

// theories such as Dynamic Systems Theory (DST) and Polyvagal Theory which have relevance to movement patterns and responses seen in a movement studio setting

Who is this course for
