Futurehealth WinterBrain 4 hour in-depth workshop presentation by Valdeane Brown.

Many clinicians are already well aware of the Period 3 Approach to CNS Functional Transformation using Non-Linear Dynamical (NLD) Control Mechanisms. They know the simple yet comprehensive way this paradigm organizes the diversity of techniques available to practicing neurofeedback clinicians.  And they know how effective this single approach is across the entire range of disorders and conditions for which neurofeedback is used.

Until now constraints in computing platforms and software have limited the full impact of the Period 3 Approach. In particular, each of the periods has been conceptualized as a separate procedure and clinicians have fractionated their clients between them. This has, of course, led to questions concerning the appropriate or optimal sequencing of these transitions ÿ an unfortunate outcome of limitations in computers, not the paradigm.  Although highly effective, this quasi-sequenced implementation has diminished the potential of a truly revolutionary approach.

With new equipment it is now possible to implement the full protocol concurrently: we call this advance the NeuroCare Matrix ™. Navigating the NeuroCare Matrix ™ involves "real-time" processing of multiple augmentation parameters as well as multiple inhibits. In the past, we could only train SMR and Beta simultaneously and this restriced the clinician to focussing on a single, limiting perspective on the emerging clinical data. Now we can train all of the augments simultaneously, raising several important issues. In this workshop, we will consider these issues and reveal new training approaches that are only now possible. You will learn how to:

Shift perspectives on the matrix to emulate older more limited systems.

Use Joint-Time Frequency Analysis (JTFA) techniques to analyze your data meaningfully and easily. Use a new improved Frequency Mirror to both monitor ongoing EEG and to threshold and modify filter ranges on the fly.
Maximize clinical effectiveness by navigating the NeuroCare Matrix ™.

Goals describe how the NeuroCare Matrix ™ is a superset incorporating all current neurofeedback paradigms Describe how to use the new improved Frequency Mirror to both monitor ongoing EEG and to threshold and modify filter ranges. Describe the role of JTFA in analyzing EEG.

-The CNS can only train one augment target at a time, more is too confusing. False
-When using the NeuroCare Matrix ™ the major difference in training paradigms centers around whether training occurs with eyes open or closed. True
-Using linegraphs to monitor the raw waveform is critically important for clinicians using computerized systems. False
-Other systems and approaches represent smaller sets of therapeutic possibilities than the Period 3 Approach and this can be seen easily by shifting between perspectives on the NeuroCare Matrix ™. True
-Mean, Standard Deviation and Variance are more appropriate, intuitive and visually comprehensible measures than JTFA. False
-Conscious processing on the part of the client, coupled with explicit coaching from the clinician, are essential ingredients of neurofeedback. False
-Training is best accomplished when fixed trials and static thresholds are used. False
