Kamran Fallahpour

Kamran Fallahpour

Kamran Fallahpour, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist with expertise in clinical and research applications of neuropsychophysiology. He is the director of Brain Resource Assessment and Treatment Center of New York and the Director of the Neurofeedback Consortium for The Brain Resource Company International, an International consortium of researchers, who have established a standardized benchmark in databasing the human brain through unprecedented levels of integration and quality control. He is also the co-founder of Brainquiry, a manufacturer of state-of-the art wireless biofeedback and neurofeedback equipment. In addition to his clinical practice and research activities, he remains active in design and refinement of physiological and cognitive monitoring systems and human-computer interface.

Plenary #146):  Development and ageing across the lifespan using common 

This study established standardized age, gender and years of education norms for
subjects spanning nine decades for a newly developed battery of neuropsychological tests,
IntegNeuro. The battery is standardized and fully automated, using a computerized
touchscreen. The twelve neuropsychological tests of the battery were administered to 1007
male and female volunteers across the age range 6 to 82. Sensitive indicators of change
during development and ageing were widely obtained on comprehensive measures of
attention and working memory, learning and memory retrieval, and language, visuospatial
function, sensori-motor and executive function. Improvement tended to occur through to
the third and fourth decade of life, followed by gradual decrement and/or relatively
stabilized performance thereafter. These results strongly underscore the need for most
neuropsychological tests to norm according to age. Gender differences were obtained on
measures of sustained attention, verbal learning and memory, visuospatial processing and
motor function. Years of education in the adult cohort was reflected in better performance
on a range of verbal measures. The IntegNeuro test battery presented as a sensitive
indicator of normative function and provides a reference for assessing the presence of
abnormal cognition, for evaluation of treatment effects and for longitudinal case

Plenary #128):  Golf performance enhancement by means of real-life neurofeedback training based on personalized event-locked EEG profiles 

This study reports on a new method for golf performance enhancement employing real-life neurofeedback during golf putting. Participants (n=12) received an assessment and three real-life neurofeedback training sessions. In the assessment, a personal event-locked EEG profile was determined for successful vs. unsuccessful puts. Target frequency bands and amplitudes marking optimal mindset were derived from the profile by two raters. The training sessions consisted of four series of 80 puts in an ABAB design.

This study demonstrates that the ‘zone’ or the optimal mental state for golf putting shows clear recognizable individual patterns. Furthermore, most subjects improved their performance with feedback on their personal EEG profile with 10 %, on average. The learning effects suggest that this real-life approach to neurofeedback improves learning. In a follow-up study we will study the long term learning effects and the effects on these golf players handicaps.
