DPT 7120 Motor Control, Motor Learning, and Reflexes

This course examines the development of motor control and motor learning and how it applies to the attainment of movement and motor skill acquisition across the lifespan. Changes in body structures and systems which impact motor skill acquisition and motor performance are addressed. Typical motor development is presented in terms of the relationships that motor performance has with growth and maturation of the musculoskeletal, neurological, sensory, and other physiological systems. Additionally, primitive and pathologic reflexes and their relationship with function will be presented and discussed as they apply to atypical motor development, as well as changes in motor performance that occur following injury and disease
