LORETA Z Score
Workshops by the Sea. Attend a Clinical EEG
Z-Score Workshop on a Caribbean Cruise
- Mix Pleasure and Education
Sign up for a seven day Carribbean cruise (Dec. 1 to Dec. 8,
2012) with presentations by
Robert Thatcher, Ph.D., Joel Lubar, Ph.D. and Marty Wuttke. Two full day workshops (8 am to 3:30 pm Bootcamps) that focus on patient
assessment, qEEG recordings and LORETA Z Score Biofeedback. Three days of
three hour morning workshops and a 3rd full day (8 am to 3:30 pm) for summary,
review and scientific presentations.
Continuing education credits (CEUs) are available for BCIA
accreditation and other accreditation organizations. Bring your
amplifiers and electrocaps for purposes of hands on exercises in EEG
acquisition, artifact rejection, clinic report generation and LORETA Z Score
Biofeedback. Learn how to assess and then treat a variety of
clinical disorders. Learn about the latest advancements in qEEG
research and EEG biofeedback.
What is Included?
From traditional fine dining to endless
buffets with custom-order action stations, there is a host of delicious
options included in your cruise fare. And for a cover charge, you'll
also have access to a world of possibilities including gourmet French,
Japanese Teppanyaki, a traditional steakhouse and more over 20
different dining options in all.
Blue Man Group, The Second City comedy troupe in
the Caribbean, a state-of-the-art fitness center, the Aqua Park, hot tubs,
climbing and rappelling walls, bars and lounges of all kinds, a kid's
center, teen disco and more are all on board.
Flexible accommodations ranging from our new Studios
designed and priced specifically for the solo traveler to the over-the-top
opulence of Norwegian Epic's Suites & The Haven.
Day 1- Dec. 2nd (
Introduction by Robert Thatcher, Ph.D. and a run through of the standards of
qEEG assessment by hands on tutorials of artifact removal, montage selection,
LORETA and linking symptoms to networks and clinic report writing.
Day 2- Dec. 3rd () - LORETA Z Score Bootcamp by Marty Wuttke with hands on recordings and electrode
setup for LORETA Z Score Neurofeedback. Drs. Joel Lubar and Robert Thatcher

Day 3- Dec. 4th () - 3rd day Dr. Joel Lubar will present a LORETA Z NFB refresher and review of
the previous two days.
Day 4- Dec. 5th () - 4th day Marty Wuttke and Dr. Robert Thatcher will present a NeuroGuide and
LORETA Z NFB refresher and review of the previous three days.
Day 5- Dec. 6th () - Robert Thatcher, Ph.D. will review the science of qEEG and new advances in
neuroimaging: assessment and treatment.Over
