Theta Neurofeedback is a neuroscience research project to improve memory by teaching people to control their electric brain activity. I was PM at the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab.
// Theta waves are electric brain oscillations in the 3-7Hz range that the brain produces during meditation, relaxation, and memory processes.
// Neurofeedback (NFB) software allows people to control their brain activity and theta waves. Using open-source BCI software "Openvibe", I developed "Open-NFB", a NFB application that automatically adapts its difficulty to the user's success at neuro-modulation.
// We used Electroencephalography (EEG) to show that theta neurofeedback improves different types of memory: motor, episodic, and spatial. This finding could have far-reaching consequences for improving academic performance to helping patients recover with physiotherapy by accelerating their motor learning.
