Neurofeedback for the treatment of specific diseases and health promotion: methods and techniques
Italian Society of Neurofeedback and qEEG
Neurotherapy is rapidly evolving into a primary care option for many specific diseases.
This presentation will examine some of these cutting-edge applications of neurofeedback that promote neuroplasticity and restore information flow within regulating neural circuits promoting health and increasing performance. For the last ten years an interest has been growing in how to combine the eeg markers from QEEG (quantitative electroencephalography analysis) and sLoRETA (standardized low-resolution electromagnetic tomographic analysis) data to design effective protocols.
This Tutorial provide an overview of physiological monitoring ad self- regulation tools designed for professionals who want to incorporate neuroscience-based methods into their practice. The different techniques used to regulate brain circuits will be presented.
