After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Provide clients with a basic understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the CNS and PNS relevant to their professional duties
- Describe the dynamic nature of neuronal systems—sensory, motor, auditory, and visual
- Explain the basis of the symptoms that result from trauma and disease
- Present and describe some of the most recent advances in the neurosciences and future directions in research
This course covers central and peripheral nervous system anatomy and physiology and finishes with an emphasis on nervous system pathophysiology. This is the course to take after completing a basic course in EEG neurofeedback.
Psychophysiological recording methodology including EEG and scans such as MEG and PET are examined in relation to their uses in behavioral medicine. Neurological disorders centered on the CNS (such as epilepsy) are discussed in relationship to psychophysiological evaluations and behavioral interventions. To pass this course, students must complete review questions, present a one hour PowerPoint discussion, and participate in the web-based class discussions. This course is accredited and blueprint-relevant continuing education for certificants of the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance.
