This course will provide an in-depth review of neuroanatomy of the central nervous system for medical professionals. Neuropathology and clinical correlation are also incorporated for application in the clinical setting. The intended audience is allied health professionals who have previous exposure to pertinent coursework in neuroanatomy. The structure of the course provides an opportunity for review of functional neuroanatomy in both children and adults and translation of that knowledge to clinical treatment.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Physical Therapist/Physical Therapist Assistants
Occupational Therapists/Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants
Speech Language Pathologists
After this conference, participants will be able to:
Demonstrate renewed familiarity with the organization and development of the nervous system.
Understand general topography of the brain, spinal cord and the nervous system as a whole.
Describe the organization of the nervous system.
Identify the relationship between structure and function of the nervous system in development.
Integrate the concepts of neuroanatomy and neuropathology into pediatric clinical practice
Recognize basic neurophysiology and reflex physiology and relate such knowledge to treatments.
Compare and contrast a neurologist and a physical therapist performing neurologic examinations for clinical applicability.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Bernadette Gillick, PhD, MS, PT received her BS in Physical Therapy from Marquette University in 1993, her advanced masters in Neurologic PT from Chicago Medical School in 1998 and completed her PhD in Rehabilitation Science with a minor in Neuroscience at the University of Minnesota in 2011. Her thesis work in pediatric neuroplasticity incorporated transcranial magnetic stimulation and constraint-induced therapy in children and was funded by an NIH Challenge Grant. Dr. Gillick combines her clinical and academic work in pediatrics and neuroscience and has been a University Instructor in Neuroanatomy, Anatomy, Physiology, Electrotherapeutics, Human Growth and Development and Pediatrics. Her research lab investigates the use of non-invasive brain stimulation and behavioral interventions in children with stroke. She has been invited to speak internationally on topics surrounding neuroplasticity, neurorecovery and neuroanatomy. Dr. Gillick’s funding support includes the National Institute of Health, the Minnesota Medical Foundation, the Foundation for Physical Therapy and the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine.
