Introduction to Live Complexity Training

Your life exhibits complexity, shouldn't your EEG?

Using a Kuramoto Oscillator model it has been shown that physiological signals have three main easily seen variations that I call 1) sizzle, 2) tsunami, and 3) sickness behavior. Below is an illustration of how this transdiagnostic biomarker fits in with current models of vigilance and sleep states.


Have you considered what it would mean to be more "awake"? 

The following information was developed by Douglas Dailey and can be found on his website:

  • Live Complexity Training (LCT) is a theory driven approach using neurofeedback as a tool for Technology-Assisted Self-Regulation / Self-Realization (TASR).

  • Unlike traditional neurofeedback, LCT looks at the EEG itself as a transdiagnostic biomarker of sickness and wellness behavior and trains the brain and mind to be wide awake and quiet.

  • Imagine the chatter in your brain could be dramatically reduced...The "Quite Reward!"

  • When EEG complexity increases it promotes the exchange and processing of information with a decrease in metabolic demand (power).

  • Complexity is only generated by the body-mind when there is healthy balance between excitation and inhibition (“self-organized criticality”) and when there is adequate neuroplasticity and neuroprotection.

  • Complexity increases as we develop gracefulness and problem solving abilities and express wellness behavior.

  • Complexity decreases as a result of most forms of sickness behaviors. As we wake up the maladaptive patterns in our lives naturally loose interest, and we step into the healing work this makes possible. 

  • Complexity without synchrony is randomness; Synchrony without complexity is rigidity​. 

  • As we move towards complexity, the mind learns to recognize moments of quiet. This process improves our ability to be present; truly awake in our own lives!
