Brain and Nerves of the Human Body: A Programmed Text and Plate Booklet for Physical Therapy Aides.
Kristy, Jean; McDaniel, Lucy V.
Designed by physical therapists on the basis of results of job analysis and tested with several individual and two small groups, this programed text and plate booklet are intended for either individual or group use in a hospital or junior college program. It is suggested that some discussion, demonstration, and application sessions be arranged in connection with each unit. The aim of the material is to provide basic information about the normal structure and function of the nervous system which the physical therapy aide needs to know in order to understand diseases and injuries involving the brain, the spinal cord, and nerves. Four units written in a linear format include: (1) Introduction to Brain and Nerves, (2) The Brain, (3) The Spinal Cord, and (4) Peripheral Nerves. A section addressed to the instructor includes information about field testing, suggestions for enrichment, behavioral objectives. The teacher should be a registered physical therapist or nurse. A pretest and a post test are appended. (JK)
