Neurofeedback 201 Online Course:
Skills Training, Protocol Options & Understanding the EEG
This course is designed for clinicians or individuals who have already taken an introductory course and who want to go beyond the basics. Preferably, you should already have some practice with neurofeedback.
Next Course Dates: December 1st (Sat) & 2nd (Sun), 2018
When: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (EST), with 1 hour break for lunch
EEG Spectrum’s EEGer system is primarily used as the teaching tool since it has very clear EEG display. A variety of sample EEG’s will be examined and discussed. We will review what’s a normal EEG, what’s abnormal and what’s artifact. The goal will be to help you understand what to look for in the EEG and how to use this information in order to better target neurofeedback training. We’ll discuss strategies for reducing excessive amplitude and how to improve connectivity between sites. Most of the principles taught in the course can be applied across all neurofeedback systems.
In this course you will learn:
- More about the EEG for targeted training
- How to fine tune feedback
- How to use the spectral to target inhibits and rewards
- About protocol options for different conditions
- To think through protocol choices
- What to do when training plateaus
- About 2 channel Brodmann training / default mode network
In addition, we will explore some exciting new trends in neurofeedback, including multi-channel coherence training, Z score training, more on qEEG based training, HEG and LENS. If for any reason you are unable to attend, you can still benefit from this valuable training as it will be recorded for replay.

Below is the schedule for the Neurofeedback 201 course offered on location at our Jupiter office. Please note that the online version of this course provides similar content as the outline below, but in a more condensed fashion:
EEG – Indepth. Review of normal EEG distribution
Review hookups – are you running sessions right?
Strategies for bringing down excessive amplitudes from high beta and excessive high theta
The time in between beeps
How much should you show your client? What do you say?
More on the games
How to switch between multiple protocols
More on the EEG. Is it really EEG or artifact?
Mini Maps: Multi-site assessment using 3 short assessments
When to target specific frequency bands
Using the Spectral and EEG for assessment, training
How to assess progress of your last session based on the EEG
4:00 to 6:00
