Research Proposal
Aim of the study: Brain Patterns in the gifted show several deviations. In this study, we want to use newer methods to explore how different the brain of the gifted processes information. The results might help to better understand deficits in-memory processing and storage to find therapeutic approaches

All neurofeedback protocols are threshold-dependent. Therefore, the values of the EEG parameters are measured continuously, and feedback (acoustic, visual, tactile) depends on certain threshold conditions defined by the protocol design. Classical Neurofeedback Protocols like the SMR-Protocol look at the values of one EEEG-channel and one parameter...

Conference Paper
It is well known that pathologies show certain brain regions with either increased or decreased activity. For example, typical depression has an increased activation in the insula according to fMRI studies. If we show negative pictures to a person, there are specific locations in the brain that are activated as a consequence of those stimuli (Canli...

ERPs (Event-related Potentials or Evoked Potentials) have demonstrated value in providing neurophysiological information relevant to assessment, diagnosis, and monitoring treatment progress. We describe the development of a new platform that provides end-to-end ERP functionality in a highly programmable and flexible format. The system is capable of...

What is Z-Score-Training? There are several reasons why Z-Score-Protocols often show excellent clinical effects. Z-Scores are actually based on the quantitative EEG, which clinicians use to define training sites for Neurofeedback. Z-Score Training or LZT (Live Z-Score-Training) is usually a multivariant approach but it´s difficult to target all out...

Explanation of a test battery to assess cognitive performance including reaction time and inhibitory control. It´s an ipsative test as for many clinicians it´s very difficult to do testing in the clinical daily setting. The approach also allows different difficultiy levels to avoid frustration and loss of motivation. There are many individual tes...

Results of QEEG in Meditation"
Chapter
The decision-making process is the core element of our so-called free will and seems to predict our behavior. Sometimes we are more sometimes we are less aware of our decisions. According to neuroscience, most of our decisions are made before our conscious mind is aware of the already made decision. Modern Neuroscience can give answers to what hap...

The purpose of this study was to obtain normative data of a battery of tests from the software Cognitive And Psychophysiological Test Operations (CAPITO) and its comparison with classical neuropsychological tests in order to assure construct validity with the goal to create a test which is suitable for use by primary care medical staff, psychologis...

Can you supercharge your brain with technology? Consumer-based wearables have flooded the market and the promise a lot: better memory, better attention, better meditation, better motivation and mood, increasing willpower, and IQ. But is it all true and aren´t there any side effects? Thomas Feiner started developing Neurofeedback programs more than...

Any learning is time-consuming; it´s work and mental effort. But, why do some people reach their goals and other´s don´t? The conflict is as old as humanity exists. But to help – we need to understand the battle, and the modern Neuroscience helps to figure out why and how to solve it. Thomas Feiner, who has coached many people in this field, gives...

Neurofeedback is a paradigm in which individuals are trained to modulate their Electroencephalogramm (EEG) by providing them feedback about the targeted EEG component to treat syptoms and disorders associated to the neuronal condition. Neurofeedback shows effects on both the alleviation of symptoms and also changes in cognitive performance as an ap...

Introduction: Live Z-Score Training (LZT) is a new paradigm of Neurofeedback, it was developed in the last 15 years and allows to compute, review and process the deviations of z-scores in real time. Only few Neurofeedback studies have used LZT training as an intervention to measure its effects. The aim of this work is to present the neurometric (pr...
Conference Paper
It is well known that pathologies affect certain brain regions with either increased or decreased brain wave activity. For example, typical depression has an increased activation in the insula according to fMRI studies. A technology called QEEG has shown over the years that EEG can be also used for Neuroimaging, showing topographically regions in t...

Mental health professionals need operational models that integrate recent findings in the physical, cognitive, and emotional domains. Based on individual traits, predispositions, and responses to stimuli, we can begin to identify and get more insight into emotional and behavioral pathways and their specific processing patterns shown in the EEG, in...

Development of a new Brain Imaging Tool to show Brain Activiation Patterns to certain stimuli.
Article
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback in which the frequency of brain waves can be measured, analyzed and influenced. Neurofeedback is being applied world-wide by an increasing number of users. Influencing brain waves by means of the mechanisms discovered by Skinner (operant conditioning) is easily possible as long as the response to the parameter...

Aim of the study: Brain Patterns in the gifted show several deviations. In this study, we want to use newer methods to explore how different the brain of the gifted processes information. In this way, we aim to develop a norm for the diagnosis of gifted people in the 20-50 age group with the P300 event-related potential neuroimaging method.
Project
The goal is to collect ERP-Data from gifted adults and children to show memory related P300 is different from with normal population. To test this, we use modified Match to sample task.
