Dennis Romig, PhD, clinical psychologist and past president of the Biofeedback Society of Texas, presented the Quadrant Brain Theory utilized in his Austin-based neurofeedback practice. Dr. Romig is pictured here lecturing in the introductory neurofeedback course at UTSA. He discussed his research on treating depression.
An ongoing retrospective study began in 2014, with the pilot study published in Neuroregulation journal in 2015 (click here for article) and presented at the 2015 International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR). Lead author Stephanie Dreis, and fellow authors Michael Fitzsimmons, Greg Perez, and Angela Gouger presented the findings in the joint plenary session.
A follow up publication of study results is expected in 2018.
In addition, Stephanie Dreis presented the pilot as a poster presentation at the 2016 Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB).
While the focus of the neurofeedback program is on applied (clinical) aspects of treatment, there is a role in addressing technical issues, as well. As the field advances, so does the technology. Dr. Mark S. Jones, Society Faculty Adviser and Director of the program, published a research project in which several students across various semesters assisted in gathering data for an experiment in testing the validity of two means of assessing the quality of electrode connection.
