This module is designed to help you:

  • Explain the scientific underpinnings of EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) including the source of the electrical activity and identification of the neuroanatomical structures that are important in understanding thalamo-cortical dynamics.
  • List the EEG frequency ranges (in Hertz) using Greek letter designations where applicable and identify the associated mental states and/or behavior that corresponds to activity that occurs in those frequency ranges.
  • Compare the information that can be derived from the raw EEG with the information provided by quantitative EEG analysis that provides spectral arrays of EEG activity and brain maps.
  • Outline the effects of various classes of medications on the EEG.
  • Identify the conditions that may benefit from EEG biofeedback intervention and distinguish between those that are validated by sufficient controlled research published in peer-reviewed journals and those that would still be considered experimental.
