This course focuses on age-related changes in human movement, particularly as they relate to upper limb control. Changes in sensory, neuromuscular, and central neural systems will be addressed, as well as the development of adaptive strategies and the application of various therapeutic techniques to enhance motor performance. Disease conditions such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, commonly associated with the elderly, will also be discussed. While being primarily a survey course, recent experimental findings will be incorporated where appropriate. This course is relevant for those students considering careers in health care delivery with an emphasis on older populations.
