OCTH 655 Neuroscience Analysis of Occupational Performance
In OCTH 655, we will build upon prior knowledge of neuroanatomy gained through OCTH 601. Principles of neuroscience will be interpreted in clinical application using a strength-based approach to advance understanding of nervous system function. The integration and function of neural systems will be considered in relation to specific challenges and capacity of the nervous system as a whole to support behavior. A practical application and problem-based perspective will be encouraged throughout the course, with students invited to consider consumer perspective and availability of potential supports. Prerequisite: Open to students enrolled in the MOT gradate program or those with permission from the OTEd department.
