Concussion injury is a significant cause of physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges for people across all age groups.
While many people recover within a few weeks, research suggests up to 33% of individuals suffering a sports-related mild traumatic brain injury continue to have persistent concussion symptoms affecting their overall function and quality of life. Therapies that address underlying mechanisms affecting central processing and neural synchronization are important components of an individual’s recovery. Interactive Metronome provides integration of sensory and motor processing for improved neural timing and should be considered as part of a rehabilitation program in people with post-concussion symptoms. This course will provide an overview of the neural circuits involved in central processing and novel approaches for applying Interactive Metronome to improve neural synchronization.
Brain Injury/Stroke Courses
Brain injuries can occur anywhere, anytime and to anyone. Whether it is external trauma, disease or a stroke, lingering effects on the brain can rob someone of his or her quality of life. Restoring that quality of life for brain injury patients is the goal of these courses.
