Improvements in the effectiveness and efficiency of Neurotherapy through the use of the Hilbert-Huang Transform in Neurodiagnostics and biofeedback practice.

Noel Thompson , Bill Scott

In the last five years, there have been two very important breakthroughs in our understanding of EEG signals with implications for Neurodiagnostics and neurotherapy practice.
The first of these is the work of Robert T. Knight, and his group at Stanford, that have shown the importance of high gamma signals through their work on intracranial electrocorticography. These workers have also shown phase amplitude coupling between high gamma, and alpha, in visual processing.The second is the work of Ali Mazaheri and Ole Jensen on the visual word processing area, and mismatch negativity. This work has shown clear diagnostic differences between ADHD and non ADHD subjects, in the control of attention and Alpha and Theta amplitude before and after mistakes.

Noel Thompson

Noel Thompson graduated in Science with Honors in Physics, Sydney University, 1964
For the next two years, worked in Civil Engineering at Sydney University, measuring the physical properties of concrete. This work resulted in the first recognition of the importance of coupled heat and moisture transport in concrete, and was published in a short note on difficulties met when measuring the thermal conductivity of concrete.
In 1968, completed a Masters Degree in Nuclear and Reactor Physics at the University of Birmingham, UK. Joined the Australian Atomic Energy Commission in 1969, and in conjunction with Ivan Mayer developed a theory of improved reactor safety from steam condensation on the secondary cooling circuit after a reactor accident.
In 1975, joined the University of New South Wales at the Royal Military College, Duntroon as a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering. On sabbatical in 1979, was visiting professor of Chemistry at University of Maine, and developed solutions to special problems in statistical mechanics, including phase transitions in two dimensional liquids (liquid crystal displays) in conjunction with Jay Rasiaha and Ben Frazier.
In 1982, joined BHP steel as a researcher in process engineering. Developed a theory of tension leveling that led to great improvements in flat steel processing and received the award for best manufacturing facility from the institution of engineers (awarded to the company!!!, no individuals in steel). Also developed a theory of stresses in wound coils that was specifically for steel, but also applicable to other coils such as paper.
Became involved in TQC and later delivery performance, and developed the now famous “packing curve”, a concept that has since been used in many areas and popularized through the book “Critical Chain” by Goldbratt.
In 1993, joined James Hardie, a building products company which at that time was almost unknown in the USA, as head of product development. This quickly changed to head of Research, Development, and Engineering for James Hardie, and General Manager of a separate company James Hardie Research. In this position, was one of the top management team that developed James Hardie into the largest single supplier of siding in the USA, and a fast growing building products company with products for flooring, walling, and other external cladding: a multi-billion dollar per annum company in USA, with manufacturing plants of their own exclusive design in five states.

Bill Scott

Bill Scott has been featured as an EEG Biofeedback Expert on Discovery Science, lectured at the American Psychiatric Association five times, and presented research at the American Association for the Advancement of Science as Principal Investigator of a UCLA study.

The aforementioned UCLA study is one of the largest randomized controlled trials in the field of EEG Biofeedback.  In 2005 the results of the study were published in The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse.

Bill has been involved in research and teaching in the biofeedback area for many years. In 1993, Bill also worked as Principal Investigator and first author of an addiction research project with Dr. Eugene Peniston where they yielded an unprecedented 79% success rate with Native American alcoholics. The Psychiatric Times published a feature article interviewing Bill about this landmark study.

He has also been published in the January 2000 issue of Clinical Electroencephalography (EEG), an official journal of the EEG and Clinical Neuroscience Society (ECNS).

Bill Scott has taught more than 3,000Neurofeedback practitioners around the globe since 1995.Classes were taught on behalf of EEG Spectrum, BrainMaster, Stens and BrainPaint. Bill continues his research and innovative developments in the field of EEG Biofeedback as CEO of BrainPaint.
