  • Discuss how spinal manipulation can lead to neural plastic changes involving cortical drive and the H-reflex pathway
  • Assess the impact of cervical spinal manipulation on heart rate variability
  • Assess how somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) can be used to elucidate differences in cortical activity associated with a spinal manipulation (SM) intervention
  • Describe alterations in cortical and cerebellar motor processing in subclinical neck pain patients following spinal manipulation
  • Apply the effect of spinal manipulation on somato-sympathetic reflexes
