FAQ

Do I need to be an EEGER Affiliate to attend?

Many of the participants in the Neurofeedback Interchange Conference every year are EEG Education & Research Affiliates, because cultivating a vibrant clinician community is a core value we all share. Still, it definitely isn’t a requirement to attend! Our conference is an open forum for the exchange of ideas and experience for anyone interested in neurofeedback as a means of healing.

The conference program will be of interest to anyone practicing (or learning about) neurofeedback. There is a special focus on the software that our community uses, but we remain open-minded, and many clinicians will use different tools for different situations.

Is there a schedule I can download?

The 2020 NIC schedule is not determined yet. Once it is, there will be a pdf schedule.

What is neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a method of training the brain to improve function.

When the brain is not functioning well, evidence of this often shows up in the EEG (Electroencephalogram).

A better functioning brain can improve sleep patterns. When you sleep more efficiently, you are more alert during the day.

Neurofeedback can also help with anxiety, depression, migraines, and chronic pain. It can be helpful in managing attention – how well you can persist even at a boring task.

Neurofeedback can help you manage the emotions. Emotions may feel like the real you, but your brain has a lot to say about how you feel and react. If the emotions are out of control, that’s trainable. If they aren’t there—as in lack of empathy, for example—that, too, is trainable.

Finally, there are some specific issues where the EEG neurofeedback training can be helpful, such as in cases of seizures, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and autism. In these instances the training does not so much get rid of the problem as it simply organizes the brain to function better in the context of whatever injury or loss exists.

What is the Neurofeedback Interchange Conference?

The Neurofeedback Interchange Conference is an annual opportunity for  members of the EEG Education & Research affiliate program, clinicians of the broader neurofeedback community,  and especially EEGer users to gather together. We share experience, research, and clinical approaches. We explore interesting and challenging work and compelling questions.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend some time with other professionals who also have a passion for neurofeedback and empowering people to heal themselves.

Courses, discussions, community-building, technical support, and neurofeedback protocol swaps are all aspects of this event that clinicians value.

Where can i find more information about the pre-conference courses?

More information about courses at the Neurofeedback Interchange Conference will be found on the courses page.
