Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, the students will be able to apply knowledge and comprehension about the disease of the periferical nervous system (PNS) as well as degenerative disease of the first and second motor neuron that could have indications for a physical therapy treatment. The students will be able to evaluate the neurological disease and formulate rehabilitative hypotesis, then plan an intervention of physical therapy
