Motor Learning and Clinical Application

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

In this course Dr. Montgomery discusses characteristics of motor learning and how motor learning is measured. Methods for distinguishing between "performance" and "learning" are suggested. Stages of motor learning and clinical strategies that facilitate these stages are highlighted, and the critical role of attention and "dual-task" processing is examined. Motor learning issues most relevant to therapeutic intervention are also discussed along with clinical strategies to promote motor learning.
