Course Description:

I started a sequence of scientific studies in 1962, which will be summarized here. Each new step was informed by the questions raised from the previous step. Fortunately, my search for answers was significantly aided by the application of operant conditioning, first conceived of as a tool for identifying any EEG patterns associated with motor inhibition. We labeled the pattern found as the Sensorimotor Rhythm, or SMR, which has become part of the alphabet soup of EEG jargon. The SMR Story shows how following the relationship between behavioral and neurophysiological characteristics can be used to understand relevant mechanism and ultimately correct and optimize neurofeedback applications  in order to repair or improve sensory, motor or cognitive processing. We have currently developed a new software program with Thought Technology Inc. to exploit this knowledge. This new SGN program has allowed us to conceive of a new perspective for the future of NEUROFEEDBACK.
 

Learning Objectives:
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:

  • Attendees will be able to articulate the basis of the SMR EEG rhythm, as well as understand supporting research, data, and applications.
  • Attendees will learn about critical and relevant physiological principles of neurofeedback.
  • Attendees will be able to explain how SMR informs clinical neurofeedback practice.
  • Attendees will learn an appreciation for software characteristics essential for valid NEUROFEEDBACK.

Level: Advanced

Who Should Attend: Persons with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree will benefit from this advanced introduction to our field. Those with graduate experience in Psychology and/or Neurobiology will benefit most. Physicians will discover the solid scientific basis underlying competent NEUROFEEDBACK.

CE Credits: 2 credits

Psychologists: The Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. AAPB maintains responsibility for the program and its content. This webinar offers a MAXIMUM of 2 hours.

BCIA Recertification: Hour-for-hour attendance in breakout sessions/workshops may be used to fulfill the continuing education requirements for recertification with certificate of attendance.
