Course Description

CEU Course Description

Stroke is one of the principal causes of morbidity and mortality in adults in the developed world and the leading cause of disability in all industrialized countries.  The aim of this CEU course is to provide an integrative view of the top-down approaches and their relationships with the traditional bottom-up in gait recovery after stroke.  This aim is accomplished by reviewing the neurophysiology of gait, focusing on the recent ideas on the relation among cortical brain stem and spinal centers for gait control; classic gait rehabilitation techniques, including neurophysiological and motor learning approaches; and current methods that would be useful in a top-down approach. This course is based on an article by BioMed Central Ltd.
