Neurofeedback 201 Course Recording (approximately 8 hours)
Skills Training, Protocol Options & Understanding the EEG
This course is designed to take you beyond the neurofeedback basics and help you to better understand the EEG. A better understanding of the EEG can assist you in fine tuning training to fit the unique needs of your client. It’s an opportunity to refine your skills and explore protocol options for a wide range of conditions.
Skill Level & intended audience: Intermediate & beyond. Intended for individuals who have already taken an introductory neurofeedback course and who have some experience with neurofeedback This can include mental health professionals, health care providers and home users.
Instructor: Michael Cohen, President & Director of Center for Brain
Recording time: Approximately 8 hours of audiovisual presentation with Instructor Michael Cohen. The recording is from a previous online course with audience participation. The recording is unedited.
Cost of Course: $425
In this course you will learn to:
- Better understand the EEG for targeted training
- Identify a normal EEG & abnormal EEG
- Distinguish between real EEG and artifact
- Utilize strategies for reducing excessive amplitude
- Use the spectral to target inhibits and rewards
- Target specific frequency bands
- Use different protocols for different brain states which tend to correlate with conditions like depression, anxiety, migraines, and more
- Think through protocol choices and what to do when training plateaus
A number of sample client EEG’s are reviewed during the course and there is discussion about what’s a normal EEG, an abnormal EEG and what’s artifact. The goal is to help you understand what to look for in the EEG and how to use this information for targeted training.
Instructor Michael Cohen will show you how to use the spectral for EEG assessment and how to evaluate training progress based on the EEG. Strategies will be discussed for reducing excessive amplitude and how to improve connectivity between sites. Though EEG’s will be reviewed on an EEGer display (EEGer has a well defined EEG display), the basic EEG info can be translated to other neurofeedback systems as well. The primary focus is on single channel and 2 channel sites with some discussion of other types of training.
In addition, there is coverage on some exciting new trends in neurofeedback, including multi-channel coherence training, Z score training, more on qEEG based training, HEG and LENS.
What materials are included with the course:
- Approximately 8 hours of audiovisual recording with instructor Michael Cohen
- The option of a free 30 minute consultation with the instructor upon completion of the course to help answer any remaining course related questions
- All presentation slides of the course
- A variety of protocol options for depression, anxiety, sensory issues, migraines, processing issues, ADHD & attentional problems, emotional regulation, disturbed sleep and more
- Sample EEG’s and what to look for
- Information on Microvolt averages
- Material on Brodmann areas and how they correlate to neurofeedback protocols
- Upon request – purchasers can also receive information on sleep, brain supplements, the effects of wifi and how to hardwire your devices

About Michael Cohen
Michael Cohen, B.S., Director of Center for Brain and Chief of Neurotechnology, has been teaching neurofeedback courses since 1998. His courses have evolved over the years to include new research in brain science and psychology. Advances in brain imaging and analysis, as well as methods integrating psychotherapy, medication and neurofeedback, have influenced the development of his courses.
Mr. Cohen has taught at the graduate level at Cambridge College and APA accredited courses at ISNR Neurofeedback conferences (2004-2017). He’s been an invited lecturer at the American Psycholgical Association (2005-20011) and the Australian Clinical Neurofeedback conference (2002, 2004). He’s presented on neuropsychology and cortical function, EEG analysis, and how to use neurofeedback as an adjunct to treating behavioral issues, mood, attention and anxiety.
Mr. Cohen co-founded his first clinic in 1996 and Center for Brain in Jupiter, Florida in 2006. Cases at Center for Brain include clients dealing with anxiety, depression, TBI, ADHD, sleep issues, memory loss & more. His most recent publication Neurofeedback 101: Rewiring the Brain for Anxiety, ADHD, Depression & Beyond (without medication) is now available.
Mike is considered a leading expert in EEG neurofeedback and serves as a consultant to clinicians and addiction treatment centers around the U.S. and abroad. He has been awarded a Fellow by the International Society of Neurofeedback Research for his accomplishments.
