Tom Collura has over 30 years experience as a biomedical engineer and neurophysiologist. He has conducted clinical research and development in evoked potentials, microelectronics, human factors, EEG mapping for epilepsy, and neurofeedback. He received undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and Biology (1973) from Brown University, and received the Ph.D. (1978) in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. His graduate work focused on real-time visual and auditory evoked potentials and selective attention in a vigilance task. He spent 8 years with AT&T Bell Laboratories as a technical staff member and supervisor in integrated circuits, computers, and man/machine interfaces. He served from 1988 to 1996 on the Staff of the Department of Neurology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, where he conducted research and development in EEG mapping for epilepsy surgery, long-term EEG monitoring, and DC brain potentials. As a consultant, he has designed software and hardware for computerized tomography, automated radiometry, and automated imaging. He has conducted research in psi phenomena, and in 1984 discovered synchronous gamma EEG waves in a gifted clairvoyant. Since 1995, he has been founder and president of BrainMaster Technologies, Inc. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, abstracts, and papers, and has taught at the university and medical school level. He has 4 patents and 3 patents pending, all in the areas of neurofeedback, electrode technology, and evoked potentials. He is a licensed Professional Engineer, is a past board member of the International Society for Neuronal Regulation, and is president of the Neurofeedback Division of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, and was a 2006 recipient of the Hans Berger award of the AAPB.
