Dr. Collura has over 30 years experience as a biomedical engineer and neurophysiologist.  He has conducted clinical research and development and system design, in the areas of evoked potentials, microelectronics, human factors, EEG mapping for epilepsy surgery, and neurofeedback.  His graduate work focused on the real-time measurement of visual and auditory evoked potentials, and relationships with selective attention in a vigilance task.  He then spent 8 years with AT&T Bell Laboratories as a technical staff member and supervisor in the areas of integrated circuit technology, computer graphics, networking, and man/machine interfaces.  He then 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 to industry, he has designed software and hardware for computerized tomography, automated radiometry, and automated imaging.  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.  He has 2 patents and 3 patents pending, all in the areas of neurofeedback, electrode technology, and evoked potential methods and systems.  His current interests focus on research and development of automated neurofeedback systems, evoked potential neurofeedback, and low-cost quantitative EEG.  He is a licensed Professional Engineer in Ohio and Illinois, is a past board member of the International Society for Neuronal Regulation (ISNR), and is president-elect of the Neurofeedback Division of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB).

Friday, February 19, 2010 SHARE More Sharing FLEXIBILITY AND APPROPRIATENESS -AN UNDERPINNING WE CAN ALL AGREE UPON (1836 views) Flexibility and appropriateness of brain function are put into context, and show up at the core of many applications of neurofeedback. It is not so much an issue of "too much" or "too little" as it is one of the brain having the ability to be flexible and appropriate, to access brain states that are suited to the task or situation.
Monday, February 1, 2010 SHARE More Sharing Connection, Inhibition and Path-Specific Relaxation Training (1029 views) The brain is a hyperconnected system, containing on the order of 10 billion neurons, each of which can have hundreds or thousands of connections to other neurons. The brain depends on dynamically managing trillions of connections, to regulate the interactions between all of its parts. How are all of these connections managed toward useful ends? The key lies in the ability to network to selectively enable or disable conn...
Monday, December 7, 2009 SHARE More Sharing THE NEURO-RELAXATION PARADIGM (1120 views) Neuronal Regulation is a key concept in neurofeedback. Rather than being a trivial concept related to a simple relaxation state, neurorelaxation means affecting the brain at its most dynamical level, implementing change that is transformational in nature.
Friday, November 27, 2009 SHARE More Sharing INFORMATION, ENTROPY, AND FREEDOM OF CHOICE (734 views) The concept of information and entropy is key to understanding how we are able to have the ability to make choices. A brain-oriented view of this leads to helpful insights regarding neurofeedback and its potential for human development.
Thursday, November 12, 2009 SHARE More Sharing ON PERSONAL CONNECTIVITY (673 views) When we look at our personal connectivity over time, we realize that our own interpersonal connections are vast and profound. This should affect how we choose to view each other, and act accordingly.
Thursday, October 29, 2009 SHARE More Sharing COHERENCE AND BRAIN CONNECTIVITY-THEIR MEANING (4295 views) This article describes the importance and nature of brain connectivity measures, as applied to neurofeedback. Coherence and other variables are important factors in designing and conducting neurofeedback training.
Monday, October 12, 2009 SHARE More Sharing A Relaxation/Activation model for EEG Alpha (1329 views) EEG Alpha training is put in the context of the entire brain, and its normal level of cycling. This can help to motivate neurofeedback training, and connectivity training in particular.
Friday, September 25, 2009 SHARE More Sharing NEUROFEEDBACK - WHAT TO DO (OR NOT DO) (1030 views) Neurofeedback is a process, not a job. When practitioners and trainees approach EEG training as a process of allowing, not doing, results will be forthcoming.
