1. Key Neural Anatomy and Neuroplasticity Concepts
In this first chapter, Dr. Grooms will review the basic neural anatomy and principles of neuroplasticity, focusing on the brain substrates for motor learning.
2. Neural Correlates of Movement, Action, Control, and Learning
This section will expand upon the previous section by highlighting the anatomy and the principles of neuroplasticity to transition to mechanisms of motor learning and how the nervous system programs movement. This is a “bring-it-together" section before going into therapy implications.
3. Therapy Implications
This final section will utilize the knowledge of the previous two sections to provide concrete and implemental clinical practice changes to induce adaptive neuroplasticity, as well as highlight future directions for the field.
