Conference Vision

To bring together the field's best leaders, innovators and thinkers to share advanced, cutting edge ideas & techniques, network,& advance the fields forward while having tropical fun. The meeting covers the cutting edges of the world of mind brain and consciousness measurement, modification and training. Main themes include neurofeedback, brain mapping, qEEG, ADD, sound/light technology peak performance, brain/mind smart drugs, nutrients, power therapies, etc., clinical neuropsychophysiology and related economics, and consciousness. Over 50 speakers and 25+ workshops and a great exhibit hall. . None of the speakers are paid to present. They come because they want to hear the best experts in the world sharing their newest findings and ideas, at the first place they are reported, and they enjoy the quality of the questions and the dialogue. The workshops are extraordinary opportunities to get in-depth information, training or just the thinking of the masters of the Brain/Mind arts and sciences universe.
