Empathy: A Network Perspective (SKU: AH-P-376)
Futurehealth Plenary Talk by Sigfried Othmer.
The emergence of altruism, a puzzle to evolutionary biology, can be understood as a natural concomitant of the emergence of empathy.
Simplicity and Complexity in Neurofeedback (SKU: AG-P-081)
Futurehealth WinterBrain Plenary presentation by Sigfried Othmer.
Considerable proliferation has occurred in recent years in basic approaches to neurofeedback. Yet there is considerable overlap in terms of efficacy. The attempt is made in this talk to extract the essential elements of commonality among these approaches, and the essential elements that differentiate them. In the manner, it may be possible to discern a minimal set of attributes that neurofeedback strategies should feature in order to yield full coverage of the clinical terrain.
The Self-Regulation Regime: Conceptual and Practical Reunification of Biofeedback and Neurofeedback (SKU: AG-P-193)
Futurehealth Plenary Talk
Abstract: As a discipline at the forefront of mind-body medicine, applied psychophysiology must address itself to the arbitrary split between feedback on peripheral physiology and on the EEG. It is most likely that changes adopted in the practitioner community to combine the strengths of both approaches will lead toward a theoretical reconceptualization of feedback by any modality as an aspect of a more unitary approach toward improved self-regulation.
Theoretical Models Underlying Neurofeedback (SKU: AG-W2-081)
Futurehealth Workshop by Sigfried Othmer
One of the most striking aspects of neurofeedback is that it addresses such a broad variety of clinical conditions with a very simple set of techniques. What can explain such generality of effects? It is helpful to adopt a network model in which neurofeedback addresses the ?hub? of a regulatory network that is hierarchical in nature, and to which yet other regulatory networks are intimately coupled. A second key aspect is that it addresses the problems of regulation where the most stringent constraints apply.
