DeVore, is a clinical psychologist, licensed in the State of Washington. He completed his PhD in psychology at St. Louis University in St. DeVore has had a career including 20 years of federal service with 11 years active duty.

DeVore recently retired from 20 years of federal service and now has a private practice in an integrative healthcare center, focusing on treatment with biofeedback, neurofeedback, hypnosis, and EMDR. DeVore is fascinated with the ways in which biofeedback, neurofeedback and hypnosis can foster health recovery and health resilience.

He is also fascinated with the psychophysiology of altered states of consciousness such as hypnosis and he regularly presents in the area of experiential spirituality.

Course Concept and Description: This course is set at the depth and instructional level of a three credit post-licensure course and provides 45 hours of CE credit.

It is intended for psychologists and other behavioral clinicians who have not had previous training in aspects of anatomy and physiology related to how the body and mind interact to control behavior and psychophysiological states. Each basic physical structure and organ system including the nervous system is discussed with regard to both anatomical structures and physiological functions as they change over time and in relation to both the external and internal environment.

The main course objective is to provide the depth of knowledge behavioral clinicians require to understand the physical bases for psychophysiological problems and interventions. The course is also intended to enhance communication with physicians and other medical professionals by providing common concepts, information, and vocabulary essential to understanding the discussion of medical disorders.

Clinicians having differing interests and patient populations take this course so it has been designed so you have slightly different materials available to you depending on what your interests are and the types of patients you see. If you work in a setting where most of the patients have social interaction and anxiety problems rather than complex medical problems, the required text book will suffice to meet your needs.

This level meets all requirements for BCIA certification. If you are a health psychologist, a behavioral medicine specialist, or in a graduate program leading to one of these degrees, you should take this option.

If you are doing muscular rehabilitation, working with people having muscular dysfunctions, or in a clinical psychophysiology graduate program or track, an optional book emphasizing kinesiology has also been provided.

You will learn by watching audiovisual lectures provided on the course web site or CDs, reading assignments both from materials provided on the course web site or CDs and one or more standard texts, watching a movie, and interacting extensively with the instructor via e-mail and, if you wish, by phone.

You will answer short essay questions after each lecture rather than taking exams. Previous students have required between 45 and 95 hours of work with a median of 65 hours to complete this course.

There are no prerequisites for this course. Note to people primarily interested in EEG: Of most importance, typical neuroanatomy courses do NOT include much of the crucial information you need to know about how hormones and other functions influence the brain and can overwhelm anything we do with neurofeedback.

People who want more depth in neuroanatomy and neurophysiology should take our advanced psychoneurophysiology course. As a result of taking this course, you should be able to: Be able to discuss functional and structural bases of disorders.

Understand how the muscles function and contribute to functional disorders.

PEP002: Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology / Human Biology for Behavioral Clinicians The 4 primary tissues of the human body, Epithelium, Connective, Muscular, and Nervous, will be studied in detail. How they contribute to the structures of the human body will be studied throughout this note and the following topics will be specifically covered in this order:

Be able to discuss how immune dysfunction relates to functional disorders.Anatomy is a fundamental science that studies the structure of the human body from ancient times. Over time, the discipline constantly expands with recent progress that has been produced in researching the human body.

We explain the different muscles in the human body and how they work including origin, insertion, joint actions, exercises and stretching. Welcome to, a free educational resource for learning about human anatomy and physiology.

Learn how muscles work including sliding filament theory, muscles actions, muscle fibre types, types of muscle contraction, the structure of a muscle fibre and types of muscle tissue found in the human body. In addition, every muscle fiber in a skeletal muscle is supplied by the axon branch of a somatic motor neuron, which signals the fiber to contract. Unlike cardiac and smooth muscle, the only way to functionally contract a skeletal muscle is through signaling from the nervous system. The human skeleton is made up of bones. The functions of the skeleton are to provide support, give our bodies shape, provide protection to other systems and organs of the body, to provide attachments for muscles, to produce movement and to produce red blood cells.

Endocrine System. The skeletal system includes all of the bones, cartilages, and ligaments of the body that support and give shape to the body and body structures.

The skeleton consists of the bones of the body. For adults, there are bones in the skeleton. The human skeleton is made up of bones. The functions of the skeleton are to provide support, give our bodies shape, provide protection to other systems and organs of the body, to provide attachments for muscles, to produce movement and to produce red blood cells. is a free virtual human anatomy website with detailed models of all human body systems.
