N1 - Neuroscience in the Clinic: Neurobiology and Treatment of Disorders of Language and Action

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): H. Coslett MD, FAAN
Description: Recent advances in behavioral neurology, neuroimaging and neurophysiology have substantially updated the understanding of aphasia and disorders of action such as hemiparesis and apraxia. This evolving conceptualization, however, has not been incorporated into the prevailing notions of these disorders and their treatment. The lack of familiarity with current concepts of the neurobiology of language and action is important as it prevents clinicians from evaluating and exploiting current and emerging treatments for these disorders. To address this issue, this course will focus on recent behavioral, non-invasive brain stimulation (e.g., TMS, tDCS) and neuroimaging investigations of the neurobiology of language and action. In separate talks followed by ample time for discussion, recent advances in the neurobiology of language and action will be presented. These presentations will be followed by talks discussing the potential clinical implications of the evolving understanding of language and action.
Completion Message: Participants are expected to gain a richer understanding of the brain processes underlying language and action. Importantly, participants will also learn how an updated understanding of disorders of language and action may translate into therapies.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
