Dr. Gibbs reviews current research advances in neurology and evidence for best practice and to enhance intervention techniques for addressing the challenges of various neurological conditions including Complex Trauma Disorder, Autism, ADHD, and sensory processing disorders.
This course reviews the various neurological senses, neuronal oscillations, and the autonomic neuronal plexuses to better understand the symptomatology.
This course will give specific focus to the various central nervous system plexuses and the role of the Vagus nerve.
Active learning strategies will include video neuroanatomical reviews and case examples. You will be able to describe the various neurological structures related to the senses, describe neuronal oscillations and their connection to function, relate current research on the neuronal plexuses to function and dysfunction of individuals with Complex Trauma Disorder, Autism, ADHD, and related disorders.
