Physiology and Neurofeedback Lab

Professor Yimei Lin has more than 20 years of clinical psychological practice experience and conducted a one-year physiological feedback visit to San Francisco State University in 2007. The two topics of her research: 

(1) Autonomic and heartbeat variability physiological feedback interventions: to investigate the physiological pathology of autonomic mechanisms in depression, cardiovascular diseases (coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension), and lung diseases (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, lung cancer), and to develop a heartbeat variability physiological feedback program suitable for clinical patients in Taiwan, and to apply it to coronary heart disease, depression, heroin users in rehab and prisons, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, healthy adults, and exam-stressed junior high school students. We will combine the intervention with the latest wearable device technology and artificial intelligence to verify the therapeutic efficacy. (1)

(2) Brainwave and neurofeedback intervention: To explore the physiopathological mechanism of brainwaves in depressed patients and develop neurofeedback (brainwave training) programs, including frontal alpha asymmetry neurofeedback (ALAY program) and high-beta neurofeedback program; at the same time, to collect the database of brainwave patterns of healthy people in Taiwan and compare it with the database of brainwave patterns in the U.S. to conduct In addition, we collected brainwave patterns from healthy people in Taiwan and compared them with those from the United States, and conducted quantitative brainwave (QEEG) and brain mapping analyses; and developed a whole brain 19-band z-score neurofeedback and a deep LORETA (low-resolution electromagnetic tomography) neurofeedback for patients with depression.
