Neurofeedback is a useful intervention in clinicial practice, but how can we help those living in remote areas who don’t have ready access to clinical services? This presentation will provide an overview of a model for remote supervision of neurofeedback that has been successfully used for the past six years to assist clients in home and school environments. Outcome data from one school will be briefly presented, but the main focus will be on the model itself.
A newly developed web-based software application that includes database capabilities, secure transfer of session files and symptom tracking software that automatically graphs progress across a range of variables will also be demonstrated.
Dr Rowe’s presentation discusses the use of scientific theory in driving clinical assessment and treatment through the use of individual patient neurophysiological, neuropsychological and psychological
Quantitative EEG is a direct measure of the electrical energies of the brain which are produced by synapses on the dendrites and cell bodies of cortical pyramidal cells. The network dynamics necessary for proper function of the brain can be disrupted following a traumatic brain injury and can persist for years following even apparently minor injuries with no associated loss of consciousness.
The QEEG data collected in STARTTS Neurofeedback clinic indicates that the excessive temporal lobe alpha and frontal lobe disturbances are two profiles seen most frequently in traumatized clients.
In the 1990s Prof. Yuri Kropotov started his research in the field of quantitative EEG and evoked potentials in normal subjects, in ADHD population and in neurological patients to whom intracranial electrodes were implanted for diagnosis and therapy.
An important task of the human central nervous system is to link sensory information to appropriate response. This is the defining characteristic of adaptive behaviour in humans. Such adaptability is presumed to be mediated by working memory systems that process and respond to detected stimuli according to experience, needs, context and intention, and underpin the capacity to realise goals and plans.
This presentation will review the research of Dr. Robert Coben with Autistic Children with a view to understanding his coherence training methodology. Dr. Gary Schummer has analysed and adapted this methodology in his own research with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum children. Drs. Coben and Schummer base their coherence training on the Neuro Rep analysis of Dr. William Hudspeth.
