Due to popular demand, we are presenting this practical one day training on balance and eye movement. Farshideh is very interested in the integrating the role of sensory modalities in daily life.
The Role of Ocular Motor Skills in Balance
1st October 2016
The aim of this one day practical training, is to help practitioners to improve their understanding of ocular motor skills, direction of movements, spatial awareness and balance.
Most neurological clients with abnormal head posture, sensory and proprioceptive deficits do not have normal afferent feedback. This results in flexed and tilted head posture which does have an effect on vestibular system. The vestibular system has many interneuron connection with cerebellum as well as basal ganglion. The visual system gives information regarding the environment we are in ie spatial orientation, the visual system has many connection with parietal cortex which also enables decision making and planning how to go about in any environment. Following the masterclass in May 2016 we will continue using FES to improve balance.
