Functional Neurology Made Easy and Understandable Leiden (NL) Saturday 8 May, 2021

This module will provide functional neurologic applications in the diagnosis and treatment of disturbances of brain function, using manual techniques and neurological rehabilitation strategies. The functional neurologic components will be covered in an easy and understandable way while exploring the neuroanatomy and physiology of the lobes of the brain.  We will divide the left and right half of the brain and analyze the functions of the frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital lobe. What are the implications of under- or over activity?  How do the lobes communicate with one another and what is the blood supply?  We will give a condensed review highlighting the most important aspects.  Topics include: Neuron theory Neuroplasticity Hemisphericity concept Optokinetic testing Blind spot mapping Cortical stimulation/inhibition Autonomic controls Apps for patient self management

Eye Movements and Rehabilitation. Leiden (NL) Saturday 16 May, 2020. 9AM-6PM

The eyes play an important role in the integrity of the nervous system. For chiropractors, the connection between the eyes, the inner ear and the spine should be clearly understood since the spinal intrinsic musculature is controlled by this very system. In this module you will learn how to assess aberrant eye movements and deficiencies

Neurodegeneration: Slow Down the Ageing Process Leiden (NL) Saturday 26 September 2020. 9AM-6PM

Neurodegeneration is a complex multifactorial process that causes neuronal death in brain and spinal cord, resulting in brain and spinal cord damage and dysfunction. Growing evidence indicates that there is a considerable overlap in riks factors, modular mechanisms of neurodegenation in neurotraumatic, neurodegenerative diseases and neuropsychiatric disorders.In this module, we will cover:• Excitotoxicity;• Oxidative stress;• Neuroinflammation;• Neurotraumatic diseases:

Concussion: New Insights to a Functional Neurologic ApproachLeiden (NL) Saturday 7 November, 2020. 9AM-6PM

In this module we will elaborate on the functional neurological consequences of concussion.  Often times, these involve imbalance of cortical and brain stem centers, ultimately effecting the vestibular system, which leads to neurovascular consequences and autonomic imbalance.  In this session we will therefore review various regions in the cortex, cerebellum, brain stem, and vestibular system, to show
