N Motor Learn & Trai


plasticity a process of neuronal reorganization & adaptation
do damaged CNS neurons regenerate? they don't
collateral sprouting process of other neurons or pathways taking over & filling in gap of damaged neuron
cerebral, spinal shock can last from 24-48 hrs, even up to several weeks- can cause flaccidity, loss of bowel & bladder control & autonomic deficits, areflexia
MRP motor relearning program
blocked task doesn't change from 1 rep to next/learn faster, more progress
random may be slight variations of task in random order/ able to generalize, better retention
random blocked variations of same task in random order but each variation is performed more than once/ faster skill acquisition than w/ random but better retention than blocked
intrinsic feedback natural result of movement, internal reference to correctness, "feels right"
augmented feedback outside cues coming in as feedback- extrinsic cues
concurrent feedback as they're learning
terminal feedback 1)immediate 2)delayed 3)summary - last two allow pt to problem solve. PTA asks "what could you have done differently"
phases of motor learning 1)cognitive 2)associative 3)autonomous
cognitive focus on "what to do"
associate focus on "how to do"
autonomous focus on "how to succeed"
