Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to examine the efficacy of neurofeedback training to promote emotion regulation during cognitive-motor performance under conditions of mental stress. The model is predicated on the notion that relative left frontal activation is indicative of an adaptive mood state reflective of task engagement. In Phase 1, participants ROTC candidates were exposed to competitive mental stress to determine the manner in which brain i.e., cerebral cortical processes are perturbed by stress.
