This on-line module will give you insight into the functional neurologic approach in the diagnosis and treatment of disturbances of brain function, demonstrating various diagnostics and neurological rehabilitation strategies. The functional neurologic components will be covered in an easy and understandable way while exploring the neuroanatomy and physiology of the lobes of the brain. We will divide the left and right half of the brain and analyze the functions of the frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital lobe. What are the implications of under- or over activity? How do the lobes communicate with one another and what is the blood supply? We will give a condensed review highlighting the most important aspects. This module is a great way to get up to speed for joining other Brain & Neuroplasticity modules.
