F.O.T.T.: Motor Control and Motor Learning

  • 354 Accesses

Abstract

Current findings on motor control, motor learning and neuroplasticity are important bases for rehabilitative therapy. They enable the design of an appropriate course of treatment, which is adapted to both the patient’s potential and environment. What is learned can thus be integrated, and progress can be made. The results of motor learning research in the field of lower extremity functions and sport have received the most attention, to date. These and other neuroscientific studies increasingly validate the clinical approach taken by F.O.T.T. This will be explained systematically in the following chapter, which does not claim to be exhaustive. Many research findings are based on studies with healthy subjects, and the same conclusions cannot necessarily be extrapolated for neurorehabilitation. As the principles of motor learning cannot be applied to all aspects of facial-oral functions, many questions remain open.
