An understanding of neurological pathways in a clinical model is required to be a competent clinician. Simply memorizing pathways does not facilitate clinical applications. This course presents a detailed review of key anatomical pathways associated with “Specific Clinical Findings.” The goal of this course is to learn how to immediately correlate history and examination findings with specific pathways. Discussion includes gait, posture, movement, tremor, postural instability, vertigo, memory, motor learning, pupil responses, eye movements, cognitive processing, etc. This is a fundamental course essential for both the novice and experienced practitioner.
