Peak Performer's Edge: Integrated Peak Performance      Program Rae Tattenbaum Jan 27-28
Jan 23 The Evolution and Current Status of Mechanisms- Based Training Master Course (6 hrs.) Siegfried Othmer, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, The EEG Institute    Starts at 9:30 AM
       This six-hour presentation will cover the research history of mechanisms-based training; the current models underpinning neurofeedback; the current suite of protocols being recommended for the psychopathologies and neurological conditions; and the hierarchy of clinical decision-making for protocol selection. The course is intended only for seasoned practitioners who wish to have a comprehensive but efficient overview of our methods and approaches. The methods presented can be implemented on the commonly available neurofeedback instrumentation.
       Also to be discussed are ways of integrating the mechanisms-based approach with alternative approaches to protocol development, including QEEG-based approaches and stimulation-based modalities. Finally, implementation of the protocols on a variety of instrumentation will be addressed.
