The most important thing about live Z Score training is that it is scientific. It is based upon published research and a well-documented normative database. It uses concepts that have been proven in clinical research to lead to beneficial outcomes. It eliminates guesswork, and reduces the risk or over- or under-training key parameters including coherence, phase, and asymmetry. These parameters are known to have optimal values, and it is important in neurofeedback training to seek training targets that are beneficial. Z Score training with 4 channels can address the whole head, and normalize activation, relaxation, concentration, focus, connectivity, control, and communication. Z Score training can provide a complex task that addresses whole brain function in a single protocol.
