Building a neurofeedback setup at home as a lay-person?
Hi there. I read about neurofeedback for the first time just a few days ago and have been researching it a lot since. I'd love to try it, but the only option available to me locally is very expensive. And so I've been investigating whether I can do it more affordably by setting up a home system and perhaps liaising with a professional to help me with protocol design and such.
So far the option I've found that seems most appropriate for me is the brain-trainer.com system as it's quite beginner-friendly with their online learning courses and the option of online supervision while setting up and using the equipment.
Has anyone any advice for setting up a home system, including recommendations on equipment? It'd be great if I could put something together for under $2k or $3k. Are there good options out there besides brain-trainer for someone like me? I have no background in this area but I've been reading 'Getting Started with EEG Neurofeedback' by John Demos and haven't yet been bowled over by the technical knowledge in it, so perhaps setting up and operating some of the equipment on my own would be possible. Of course I'd have to be careful not to go out of my depth, I know we're dealing with rewiring the brain here.
Perhaps the OpenBCI Ganglion could be an option for me? It's much more affordable than any other 4 channel amplifier I've seen. I would have no idea how to set it up, though.
Any advice would be appreciated.
