1. Describe the different roles of rewards and inhibits in EEG training.
2. Discuss the difference between arousal and EEG activation, and the implications for choice of reward frequency.
3. Describe the role of bipolar training in reducing synchrony and increasing stability of brain function.
1. It is often clinically useful to reward frequencies as low as 0-3Hz. T F
2. EEG training can be effective with reward and inhibit bands that overlap. T F
3. Bipolar training rewards increased synchrony between two electrode sites within the reward frequency. T F
1. Changing clinical approach and challenges to the model (1)
i. Beta and SMR training – good and bad frequencies
ii. Expanding inhibits
iii. Moving the reward band
iv. High and low frequency rewards
v. Overlapping rewards and inhibits
vi. Wide inhibits
i. Disregulated EEG activity
ii. Inhibits as event detectors
iii. Abnormal amplitude versus frequency
i. Normal regulatory rhythms
ii. Exercising control – not more amplitude
iii. Activation versus arousal
iv. Very high or low frequency rewards
4. Bipolar training (3)
i. Increasing the difference
ii. Phase and synchrony
iii. Desynchronization – long and short distance stability
iv. Interhemispheric versus one-hemisphere
v. One and two-channel training
i. Are we fixing the EEG?
ii. What analysis is useful for training?
