Neurology 340: The Upper Motor Neuron and Clinical Considerations

Event date: 6/11/2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Export event

Course Description:  The upper motor neuron often wreaks havoc in the minds of practitioners as it perpetuates an ominous sign of neurologic dysfunction. This presentation will present a neuroanatomic illustration of how the axial and appendicular compartments differ, how posture contributes to the upper and lower motor neuron presentations. And most of all, this presentation will increase clinical proficiency through better understanding of motor function and clinical syndromes.

Course Outline:

·         Introduction to the upper motor neuron

·         Neuroanatomy of the UMN

·         Central Integrated State

·         Clinical signs of the UMN

Course Objectives:

·         Define spasticity

·         Discuss how to grade tone

·         Outline separating axial from appendicular

·         Illustrate clinical considerations
