Topic: Neurology 205: Functional Neurology and the Frontal Lobes – Perspectives for the Practicing Chiropractor

Credit Hours: 2

Instructor: Michael Hall, DC, FIACN

Course Description: The frontal lobes are immediately germane to who we are as humans and how we present ourselves to others. The frontal lobes do not reach their full maturation until our mid-20’s. We have seen many neurological disorders attributed to dysfunction of the frontal lobes such as ADD/ ADHD, Parkinson’s and Dementia. Early clinical evaluation may give insight to subtle changes in frontal lobe functions. This presentation will serve to illuminate some of those investigational procedures. Expand your chiropractic tool box with this dynamic program and earn chiropractic credits!
