There is as amazing diversity of models concerning how and why neurofeedback training works. Some models are very localized and are closely tied to considerations of the underlying neuroanatomical structure of the CNS. Some are based on the idea that certain centers or particular sites within the brain need very specific inputs to address problematic activity at that particular location, while others postulate that specific neuropsychological functions are optimally (or ONLY) addressed by particular, spatially localized interventions. On the other end of the spectrum are approaches that are global. Some of these are based on theories involving shifting coherence measures or inducing modulations in connectivity patterns, whereas others have very different organizational principles. Some approaches seem to 'bypass' this dichotomy and simply juxtapose various technologies until an observable training response occurs. One doesn't need to accept only one end of that spectrum; however, as it is entirely possible to embrace the entire field within a single, overarching, comprehensive and adaptive approach to training. This presentation will discuss how CARE was developed in order to integrate the diaspora of all of the other approaches, and to do so in a thoroughly consistent and elegant approach to neurofeedback training. Elegant traiing relies on the intrinsic self-organinzing nature of both consciousness and the central nervous system this presentation will explore these ideas and describe the overall framework, including measurement technologies that can be used to document many aspects of the changes brought about by neurofeedback training done in this way, as well as in most others.
