The Shrinking Divide

September 12th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

In our collective attempt to achieve mainstream acceptance, we have actually been co-conspirators in trying to fit neurofeedback into the standard models.
A t the time of the storming of the Bastille in 1789, King Louis the 16th wrote in his private journal: “Rien.” Nothing. Just a few years later, he was beheaded and himself came to nothing. One could make similar judgments about our field. No one in the suites at Pfizer is quaking in his boots at the contemplation of our ascendancy. We don’t yet count for very much. But biofeedback and neurofeedback are gradually marbling into the mainstream. The scientific foundations are being shored up; the techniques are being refined; the products are becoming ever more competent, as well as more attractive in their features; and the methods are becoming more people-friendly. Most importantly, the scope of what we can now accomplish with our methods is expanding to cover the entire realm of mental health. At the moment, the contrast between the actual prospects of self-regulation-based therapies, and the awareness prevailing in the rest of the world about their potential, could hardly be greater.

Synchrony Training at the 2014 Clinical Summit

August 20th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

EEG Info Newsletter
T he 2014 Clinical Summit was held July 10th, 11th, and 12th here in Los Angeles at the Woodland Hills Hilton, right next door to our office and training facility. It was our largest turnout yet, with 140 people in attendance. The location allowed us to utilize our office for all of the practicum sessions that were offered to attendees, for the purpose of evaluating the new programs. A number of distinguished guest speakers contributed expertise in specialized areas, and the feedback we have received so far has been glowing. We are so thankful to everyone who made the effort to be present this year, and grateful to once again be in the position to share the latest developments in the field with our network of committed neurofeedback practitioners.

SMR/Beta Training in the Age of Infra-Low Frequency Training

June 6th, 2014

by Siegfried Othmer, PhD

EEG Info Newsletter
The Historical Background
M any in the field are still relying on the traditional SMR/beta protocols that were our mainstay in the nineties. Of course, what was valid before remains valid, so the protocols are clearly useful for many applications. Indeed, the field experienced its “Cambrian explosion” of broad applicability to mental health in the early nineties, and all those forays into new clinical terrain were made with the traditional protocols.

CPT Data for Infra-Low Frequency Training with Cygnet

June 5th, 2014

by John Putman and Siegfried Othmer, PhD

EEG Info NewsletterWe have just reviewed all of the CPT data sets we have acquired over the last three years at the EEG Institute for which post-training data are available. The data were acquired with the QIKtest, but they were analyzed with T.O.V.A.® norms. The data cover a variety of diagnostic categories and ages. Every case represented here received infra-low frequency training with target frequency in the range of 0.1mHz to 10mHz. The results are broadly consistent with what we have observed over the years even with the higher-frequency training. Obscured in those comparisons is the fact that we are presently working successfully with a more challenged population than we did years ago.

Brian’s Legacy Paperback Now Available

May 20th, 2014

Brian's Legacy by Siegfried Othmer, PhDWe are pleased to announce that Brian’s Legacy is now available in paperback format.

Through our son Brian’s journal entries (written during his college years) we get to experience Brian’s evolving understanding of his own condition, his ongoing struggle to improve and manage his own health, and the gradual emergence of a more mature self. In my own contribution to the book, I provide some background on the challenges our family faced while raising a troubled child, and I provide my reflections on many of Brian’s journal entries. The book tells the story of our lives together, and also describes the path we traveled to the discovery of neurofeedback, which eventually became our life’s work.

Start reading today and get inspired!

National Autism Awareness Month

April 30th, 2014

EEG Info NewsletterA pril is National Autism Awareness month. So what is new in the field of autism research? A striking finding is the enormous genetic variability we discover upon looking for the genetic causation of the disorder. There are multiple contributing factors, so it is unsurprising that there are many clinical manifestations of the condition. So what we are now calling autism isn’t just what Kanner observed originally, some 70 years ago. But how does such genetic variability arise in such short order? It has been said—correctly—that there is no such thing as a genetically mediated epidemic. The statement is correct in so far as standard Mendelian inheritance is concerned. And yet it is an epidemic that must be explained, and genes are involved.
