Protocol: Theta Alpha Gamma Synchrony Theta 4-7Hz. Alpha 9-11Hz. Gamma 35-45Hz. Placement: Fz Channel 1 . Pz Channel 2. Ground Cz Duration: 45 minutes Alpha-Gamma Training, 10 min Theta-Alpha Training Quantitative Measures: Phase Resets – ..N/A Time in Reward – ..N/A Qualitative Measures: Before(B)/ After(A) Sensory Clarity – .. N/A Concentration – .. N/A Equanimity – ..N/A Commentary: Used the TAG 2X protocol. Accidentally left the Band filter for 2 on Gamma. Was good correlation between resting nonconceptual awareness and quiet reward. Notes: Went to Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche’s weekend retreat. Next Session, do... Read The Rest →

Mind wandering and mental conversation did cause tone. Notes: Mind wandering causes tone. Next Session, do the same... Read The Rest →
Stream of consciousness post… Sottapana, or a stream winner, is a person who has eradicated the first three fetters(self identity, skeptical doubt, and adherence to rites and rituals). It’s the first of the four stages to enlightenment. 1. Anatta (No-self) – The 5 aggregates of self have been penetrated. Feelings, perception, physical, mental formations, and consciousness have been teased out. Each aggregate is seen as it actually is. 2. Skeptical doubt – Being able to see past the small self, and existing in pure awareness, I was able to realize... Read The Rest →

I’m going into doing my first neuroptimal neurofeedback session today. First, a little background on Neuroptimal. Neuroptimal is a non-invasive neurofeedback training system which works using EEG and negative feedback using sound. It acts to create resilience in the brain by alerting you when there is turbulance in brain activity. It operates on the idea that the brain is a nonlinear dynamical system, which Neuroptimal feeds information to organize and reorganize. Neuroptimal operates on 16 different brain targets from the frequency bands of .001 to 42 Hz. I’m excited to... Read The Rest →
TAG Sync targets the default mode network of the brain. It was invented by Douglas Dailey. It emphasizes the theta, alpha, and gamma frequency bands through neurofeedback. He chose the developing midline anterior to posterior theta alpha synchrony which characterizes the brains of mammals, networks of neurocognitively mature adults and advanced synchronization features of mindfulness practitioners. This method depends on phase resets in the brain which indicate more frequent updates in the operational state.
Been experimenting with R. I whipped this up really quickly using the tutorial from Flowing Data
