An Annual Event

The NeuroField Conference

Welcome to the forefront for clinically-applied neurostimulation and neurofeedback technology. If you are seeking to deepen your understanding of transcranial stimulation modalities, electro-magnetic modalities, the creation and blending of stimulation techniques, and the application of advanced neuromodulation modalities for your patients, clients, or experiments: you have arrived.

NeuroField's second annual conference builds on the success of its first . We welcome you each morning for breakfast and host two awesome parties (no jokes...truly memorable). The Welcome reception on Thursdaynight is steps away from the conference, at a nearby hot spot, where you will enjoy great food, cocktails, and company. The Saturday dinner party takes the cake, at a private, architectural masterpiece in Santa Barbara. 

The Neurofield tribe is one of neuroscientists, clinicians, neurofeedback professionals, medical doctors, scholars, and students who are forever hungry to learn and advance their knowledge for the greater good. We thrive on collaboration, not competition. Join us this summer in Santa Barbara. All great minds are welcome. 


With one mile between the mountains and the ocean, Santa Barbara is easily one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the lower 48 states. Some of the local hot spots to visit include urban wine touring area “The Funk Zone”, iconic State Street, Butterfly Beach, the Mission, Brophy Bros restaurant on the pier, Sterrn’s Wharf, the gorgeous Pacific Ocean, and numerous hiking trails. All tastes and appetites can be sated with the many sites and restaurants at this slice of heaven, 90 miles north of L.A., California.

The ICA Controversy: Seeking Reality without a Ground Truth


In neurostimulation, we are retraining the pathological brainwave patterns (like amplitude and connectivity) by using a customized blend of pulsed Electromagnetic Field stimulation and various modalities of transcranial current stimulation (tACS, tDCS, tRNS) in order to influence the brain in the direction appropriate for the condition at hand.  


Neurotherapy is the combination of neurofeedback and neurostimulation (like pulsed Electromagnetic Field (pEMF), Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), and transcranial Random Noise Stimulation (tRNS)). 



An EEG and Quantitative EEG assessment process involves a series of applications where a clinician images and studies the brain, from the inside out, looking at connections, power, and functionality, to fully understand the nature of a patient's concern or interest. This conference will cover not only EEG and QEEG assessments, but also advanced quantitative techniques and platforms, such as ICA, MATLAB, and EEG Info.
