Futurehealth WinterBrain 2 hour workshop presentation by Valdeane Brown. NLD tools can provide effective, easy to use tools to understand how well neurofeedback training is progressing, regardless of how it is done. Two such tools are presented and explored with data.

The brain is a non-linear, dynamical (NLD) system; in fact, all of human psychophysiology is best understood in terms of NLD systems theory and control procedures, even though it is comprised of discernible time-frequency events.. This means that neurofeedback training is also non-linear and dynamical, and recognizing that can help us understand some of the pervasive confusions and disagreements in the field as a whole. We all know, for instance, that subtle changes in many training regimes can hold profound impacts for the client; and we also know that diagnosis, initial presentation and assessment frequently do not adequately predict the response to specific training approaches. It is also clear that very different training approaches can provide similar outcomes in many situations. The reality of this diversity of response to various ways of providing neurofeedback training is actually predicted by NLD control theory; and this means that we can use some of the tools developed for understanding NLD systems as a set of effective means to monitor and modify neurofeedback as it is occurring. In this workshop you will learn how to use two such specific tools to understand:
1. How the process of neurofeedback training is unfolding while it is being done.
2. How the client will likely respond BETWEEN training sessions.
3. And how well the overall training is actually progressing.

You will also learn how these specific techniques were derived mathematically as well as from Mixture Model Independent Component Analysis of successful and non-successful neurofeedback training sessions across a diversity of equipment, clients and training approaches.
