When I first started learning neuromodulation I heard discussion about protocol
selection for a particular client or even a particular condition, for example
fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, I found that there were standard conditions and even
fewer standard client. As always, treatment & technique needed to be ready to be
modified depending upon real involvement.
Improvements came from using imaging studies, especially electroencephalogram
(EEG) to capture either common features of a condition (e.g., frontal asymmetry in
depression) or unique factors of a client (e.g., EEG phenotype, or maps of brain
activities compared to age-appropriate normative behavior).
TAG Sync is less a protocol and more an alternative approach to neurofeedback that
uses what techniques we already have in a context that uses what we are learning
about development of long-distance broad-band synchrony in the brain over small-
world networks carrying fractal information.
In the blog section I will start discussing some of research behind this model of
modulation. The model, in my opinion, implies neurofeedback protocols that should
be able to generally enhance adaptability and be applied in a wide variety of self-
