For many people—though they are intrigued with the brain, they often find the concept of neurofeedback challenging. How does it really work? Can it actually change the brain and how does it do that? What actually changes? And far more. Then, there’s all the unasked questions. Could neurofeedback create any harm? Are there times it just doesn’t work? What kind of problems does it really help?
This short course provides you with the basic concepts broken down into simple terms. We try to create a step-by-step approach to what neurofeedback is. It’s impossible to explain everything in such a short time, but getting a very simple, clear explanation of basics gives you something more solid to help you build more knowledge so that everything else you’re exposed to becomes more understandable.
The Basics of EEG:
• What are amplitude, frequency bands, and connectivity?
• What information is used to provide feedback?
• How is feedback provided?
• A discussion of how feedback works.
• How can you tell the EEG is changing?
• What can you or should you expect as a result of feedback.
• What is single channel vs. two-channel vs. multi-channel feedback? What are qEEGs?
• What is Z-score or LORETA training?
• What are Brodmann areas?
• What is the significance of the brain networks to neurofeedback? Why are there so many systems? How are they different? Or similar?
1. Understand how an EEG provides feedback that promotes change
2. Understand what is single channel vs. two channel vs. multichannel neurofeedback training
3. Understand the terms qEEG, LORETA and Z-score as they apply to neurofeedback training. N/A
