Differential Subjective Experiences in Learners and Non-learners in Frontal Alpha Neurofeedback: Piloting a Mixed-Method Approach (National Center for Biotechnology Information)
Neurofeedback is a powerful tool to help individuals control their brain profiles to optimize their mental functioning and well-being. However, not everyone manages to reach their potential level of control. We assumed that this is partly a consequence of different learning approaches to neurofeedback, some of which are congruent and some of which are incongruent with the learning goal. If neurofeedback practitioners, trainers, and coaches know what type of mindset or attitude supports the desired neurofeedback goal, NFT success could be facilitated in not only late-learners, but also those who would otherwise be classified as non-learners.

Awhile back my youngest son, Thomas, had the need for special medical attention at the IWK Children’s Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia. (Aside: all is well.) We had some time available to us after the appointments there, so we took in a visit to the Discovery Centre.

We found there a head-to-head game, where participants don a headband with sensors that read brain waves. Whomever is the more successful at producing the appropriate brain waves advances their on-screen avatar quickest to the goal and wins the competition.

I did well enough to win my one match, but the family didn’t take time to discuss and develop strategy. Who’s got time for that when you have three hungry children, on the road, a few hundred kilometers from home?

Different kids (still all mine), different day, different location (near home of course, πŸ˜› ).

I’m not on the road today. Instead I’m thinking about microformats. What they are and what they are not. Tiring of thinking through the method of objectively classifying content it proscribes, I started searching around online for others’ various documentation of the classification of subjective experiences. Thereby, I located the linked article.

Do. Or do not. There is no try.
