The NeuroField 5-day Bootcamp is designed to teach you multiple techniques and procedures through didactic lecture and hands-on training. While at Bootcamp you will have access to the latest neurostimulation and neurofeedback innovations and hardware available.
Dr. Nicholas Dogris and Dr. Tiff Thompson will teach you neurostimulation and neurofeedback procedures from the ground up. As a hands on class, you will then conduct those procedures with the help of NeuroField staff. The NeuroField Bootcamp is an intensive experience that will challenge you and help you to advance your knowledge in the field of neuromodulation and neurostimulation.
We will begin the training by teaching you how to acquire 19 channels of EEG using the Neuroguide brain atlas software platform. You will learn how to setup the EEG cap, check the impedance values and acquire the data. You will learn how to artifact the data and conduct a basic quantitative (QEEG) analysis in Neuroguide. You will learn how to interpret the QEEG map and match it to the symptoms of the person.
Once you have obtained the QEEG data you will be ready to utilize NeuroField64.
NeuroField64 combines and synchronized forms of stimulation: Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field stimulation (pEMF), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), transcranial alternating current stimulation(tACS), and transcranial random noise stimulation stimulation (tRNS) modalities with z-score or amplitude EEG neurofeedback for the purpose of enhancing neurofeedback effectiveness. You will learn how to setup NeuroField64 for synchronized stimulation and EEG neurofeedback. You will learn the stimulation only, dehabituation, manual control, and HRV muscle testing procedures. You will learn how to use the five stimulation databases in NeuroField64.
Dr. Dogris and Dr. Thompson will lecture about treatment planning and how to utilize QEEG and NeuroField64 in the clinical setting.
This program, when attended in its entirety, is available for 35 continuing education credits. AAPB is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. AAPB maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
