By: Institute for Continuing Education

Course Description

4 CEUs for chiropractors and NJ massage therapists*

This lecture will cover the role of bacteria in your gut and the way they influence how you experience emotion. It is an adaptation of a much longer course that was originally taught in-person at the school.

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify general anatomy and physiology of the brain and gut
  • Explain interconnections between the brain and gut
  • Identify types of bacteria
  • Explain the role of bacteria in affective states
  • Describe the role of mitochondria with regard to the gut microbiodome
  • Discuss possible corrective measures

Course includes:

  • The diencephalon, mesencephalon
  • Origin of vagus with innervations
  • Gut anatomy
  • Role of endocrine system and emotion
  • Role of the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems
  • The brain/gut interconnections
  • Schizophrenia exhibits less diverse organisms
  • Modulation of the glutamate-glutamine-GABA cycle
  • Role of the vagus nerve
  • Vagus discriminates between pathogenic and non pathogenic bacteria
  • Vagus nerve by virtue of non pathogenic bacteria uses afferent signals to allow GABA to be released
  • Anti and pro inflammatory responses via bacteria
  • Endo endocrine cells of gut villi synapse with the vagus nerve
  • Sense mechanical, chemical, and thermal stimuli
  • These stimuli are converted in tiny electrical pulses
  • Stimulate afferent vagal neurons to brain
  • Gut milieu influences the brain
  • Gut pathogens can also influence the brain
