Neurotherapy and Neurofeedback

Author: Theodore J. Chapin
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135099916
Release Date: 2013-12-04
Genre: Psychology

The fields of neurobiology and neuropsychology are growing rapidly, and neuroscientists now understand that the human brain has the capability to adapt and develop new living neurons by engaging new tasks and challenges throughout our lives, essentially allowing the brain to rewire itself. In Neurotherapy and Neurofeedback, accomplished clinicians and scholars Lori Russell-Chapin and Ted Chapin illustrate the importance of these advances and introduce counselors to the growing body of research demonstrating that the brain can be taught to self-regulate and become more efficient through neurofeedback (NF), a type of biofeedback for the brain. Students and clinicians will come away from this book with a strong sense of how brain dysregulation occurs and what kinds of interventions clinicians can use when counseling and medication prove insufficient for treating behavioral and psychological symptoms.

Lernen Sie mehr über das Biofeedback Ihres eigenen Gehirns und die Möglichkeit wie Sie Ihre Alpha-Wellen erheblich verbessern können. Alpha-Wellen sind unmittelbar verknüpft mit Meditation, Kreativität, emotionaler Heilung, schierer Lebensfreude und vielem mehr. - Bill Harris Dr. James V. Hardt, der Autor des Buches: "Die Kunst des Intelligenten Denkens", ist Doktor der Psychologie und ein Experte, der sich im Bereich der Gehirn-Leistungs-Merkmale einen internationalen Ruf erworben hat. Dr. Hardt hat die Gehirnwellen-Technologie u.a. patentiert und weiterentwickelt. Diese Technologie ermöglicht eine Umkehr der Hirnalterung und stellt gleichzeitig einen Durchbruch beim Denken und somit bei der Kreativität dar. Im Laufe der Jahre konnte er Forschungs-begleitend über 4000 Personen mit dem BIOCYBERNAUT ALPHA Training helfen, ihre Alpha-Gehirnwellen zu verbessern und auszubauen. Bevor die Teilnehmer die Trainingskabine betreten, werden Elektroden an acht signifikanten Punkten des Kopfes angebracht. Anschliessend werden die Elektroden mit den Aufzeichnungs- und Auswertungs- Computern verbunden. Was die Teilnehmer im Trainingsraum erleben, ist bei jedem Menschen unterschiedlich. Nach Erfahrungen von Dr. Hardt vergessen die meisten Teilnehmer Ihr "heimliches Millionen-Euro-Konto”, denn sie nutzen nur zwei Ihrer insgesamt 5 Gehirnwellen-Arten. Höhere Alpha Wellen zu haben, öffnet das Herz für mehr Freude, Liebe und Frieden. Es reduziert Angst und steigert das intelligente Denken durch Verbesserung der Kreativität und Erhöhung des Intelligenzquotienten.

Quantitative EEG (qEEG) has become an increasingly common method of assessment in the field of neurofeedback. The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) has issued a position paper advocating its widespread use within the field, and many entering the field gravitate toward its use because of its empirical value in the assessment and determination of protocols for intervention with neurofeedback. At the same time, the neuroimaging field has also increasingly taken an interest in qEEG and begun to employ it extensively in research alongside fMRI, because of its high temporal resolution and increasing spatial resolution resulting from recent enhancements such as low-resolution brain electromagnetic tomography (LORETA) imaging. This growing common use has provided a valuable new information source for the field of neurofeedback that can be applied at the research and clinical levels for an enriched analysis of client disorders. This chapter, on the one hand, is intended as an example of how those already engaged in qEEG might synthesize the emerging neuroimaging research with their own clinical experience, and is also an effort to present this topic in a generally understandable fashion. Those clinicians who are new to the field of neurofeedback or who are considering the use of qEEG at the clinical level are often intimidated by the complexity of the technology, and by the lack of basic guides to its implementation. Psychologists, counselors and medical professionals do not typically receive the technical training to prepare them for this new and powerful technology, which may come to play an important role in their respective professions. This chapter therefore is also meant to examine qEEG in a basic and comprehensive schema to help inform and initially guide such an audience in further exploration of the topic.

Technical Foundations of Neurofeedback

Author: Thomas F. Collura
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134467488
Release Date: 2014-01-23
Genre: Psychology

Technical Foundations of Neurofeedback provides, for the first time, an authoritative and complete account of the scientific and technical basis of EEG biofeedback. Beginning with the physiological origins of EEG rhythms, Collura describes the basis of measuring brain activity from the scalp and how brain rhythms reflect key brain regulatory processes. He then develops the theory as well as the practice of measuring, processing, and feeding back brain activity information for biofeedback training. Combining both a "top down" and a "bottom up" approach, Collura describes the core scientific principles, as well as current clinical experience and practical aspects of neurofeedback assessment and treatment therapy. Whether the reader has a technical need to understand neurofeedback, is a current or future neurofeedback practitioner, or only wants to understand the scientific basis of this important new field, this concise and authoritative book will be a key source of information. .
