Brain Networks with Joel Lubar, PhD



Industry pioneer, Joel Lubar, PhD for a presentation on Brain Networks and gain a deeps insights about the neuronal networks as they relate to neurological, psychological, and psychiatric disorders.

Participants will learn:

  • The illustration of neural networks based on fMRI and quantitative EEG.
  • How these neural networks can be incorporated into Neurofeedback protocols for multiple neurological, psychological, and psychiatric disorders.

About Joel Lubar, PhD

Professor Emeritus, University of Tennessee
Past President, ISNR and AAPB
BCN Senior Fellow, Honorary Fellow of AAPB
Licensed Psychologist and listed in the National Register of

QEEG Diplomate

Dr. Joel Lubar received his B.S. and Ph.D. from the Division of the Biological Sciences and Department of Biopsychology at the University of Chicago. He has published more than 150 papers, numerous book chapters, as well as eight books in the areas of Neuroscience and Applied Psychophysiology. One of these books was on QEEG databases for Neurotherapy published in 2003. He has been a Regional Editor for the Journal Physiology and Behavior, an Associate Editor for Biofeedback and Self Regulation.

He has held the position of Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester, then Associate Professor, and Full Professor at the University of Tennessee. Dr. Lubar also had postdoctoral Fellowship at UCLA in neuroscience. He is now professor Emeritus of the University of Tennessee.

Dr. Lubar was the past president of AABP(Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback) and was the president of ISNR(International society for Neurofeedback and Research.  He has been the president of the Academy of Certified Neurotherapists which has offered specialty certifications in EEG Biofeedback as part of the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America (BCIA). He has also been the past president of the EEG Division of the AAPB. He has served on the BCIA Board of Directors, and as a member of the executive board of the AAPB. He was previously an officer on the board of the Biofeedback Research Society. Since 1979 he had been co-director of the Southeastern Biofeedback Institute, in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is currently president of the Southeastern Neurofeedback Institute in Pompano Beach, Florida. Dr. Lubar has presented his research at many workshops in Europe, South America, Canada, Israel, Australia and to many State and National meetings of Biofeedback Organizations. He was an invited keynote speaker at the Third International Conference in Biobehavioral Self Regulation and Health, held in Tokyo, Japan, October, 1993.

Dr. Lubar was responsible for developing the use of EEG Biofeedback (Neurofeedback) as a treatment modality for children, adolescents, and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, starting with his controlled studies in mid-1970. This application of Neurofeedback has become widespread in clinics and schools throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Israel, Japan,

China, Europe and Mexico. Currently, more than 1500 health care organizations are using the EEG biofeedback protocols that Dr. Lubar has developed. Dr. Lubar is currently developing databases for the assessment of individuals with multiple addiction disorders, seizure disorders, and many clinical entities  In a 1992 publication, in Pediatric Neurology, he and his colleagues showed, for the first time, that children with the inattentive form of ADD (without hyperactivity), differ significantly in terms of quantitative EEG patterns, from matched control non-ADD children. Dr. Lubar’s laboratory at the University of Tennessee was the first to develop and publish methodology and results of LORETA neurofeedback in 2004.
