AIC WEBINAR SERIES - ZOOM
Chiropractic in neurodevelopment
Neurodevelopment is hierarchical. Complex cognitive and neurological functions need, in order to function properly, earlier hierarchical phases to have structured adequately. Otherwise, when disrupted, the complexity of human expression will be less efficacious. For academic purposes, the neurodevelopment is explained through mainly 2 streams that are connected:
- Neurological development: referring to pure neurological functions (Sensory-Motor)
- Cognitive development: referring to emotional-cognitive expression.
The webinar will focus on the first aspect of the neurodevelopment, the neurological one, in particularly the primitive reflexes. Those baby’s involuntary reactions that should gradually disappear during the first year of life. The attendees will learn how to check them and what are the causes/consequences of their presence after the first year of life.
