"Using brainwave-powered feedback is easier than ever thanks to affordable sensors and headsets, plus free apps that work on virtually any system, from smartphones to tablets to laptops," writes Susan Smith Nash. "This is a breakthrough for elearners wanting to make sure that they can effectively maintain attention and focus while maintaining a calm, relaxed state that is ideal for learning, especially for elearning, where distractions can be problematic."

This post is an interview with Stuart Johnstone, who is a research psychologist at the University of Wollongong (Australia). I do research into neurocognitive training for improving learning outcomes."
