BCIA 2024-06 NF Mentoring Webinar: Understanding pIR HEG Neurofeedback and Its Clinical Applications

Friday, June 28, 2024

Presented by: Christine Tyrrell-Baker, PhD

There are so many theories and systems available in our field, so we thought you may be interested to learn more about pirHEG and why it may be useful for some of your clients.  The more you learn about the various theories and systems, the better you’ll be able to make decisions that will better serve your practice and your clients.

Passive Infrared Hemoencephalography (pIR HEG) Neurofeedback is a noninvasive technology which focuses on the training of the prefrontal cortex utilizing an entirely passive signal. It has been observed to be helpful with migraine headaches and with self-regulation, inhibition of excessive responses, emotional tolerance, self-awareness, and coping self-efficacy across diagnostic groups. A framework for understanding pIR HEG prefrontal neurofeedback will be presented. The implementation of Carmen’s pIR HEG (EZ PIR) system in a typical session will be described. In addition, Dr. Tyrrell Baker will discuss recent clinical research pointing to how this type of Neurofeedback can be helpful in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Two case examples will be presented in depth with a session by session look at clinical progress.
