Alan Bachers on Optimal Neurology

Alan Bachers is an expert in neurofeedback training, which he comfortingly describes as helping the brain learn how to calibrate itself. He suggests that this training accelerates the process of getting into meditative or other desirable mental states, and can possibly help a medicated brain learn to function without medication. In the video below, he does a fascinating live demonstration of the NeurOptimal system on an audience member, with on-screen visualizations of the volunteer’s brain activity. I’d love to see how my brain looks with this tool! (Filmed by the Boston QS Show&Tell meetup group.)

    The EEG appears to be open loop without the participant responding to feedback. Perhaps this was intended, or I am mistaken – but maybe Alan, or someone can comment.
