Tom Collura

Dr. Collura has over 40 years experience as a biomedical engineer, neurophysiologist, and mental health professional. He has conducted clinical research and development and system design, in the areas of evoked potentials, microelectronics, human factors, EEG mapping for epilepsy surgery, and neurofeedback. His work integrates philosophy, psychology, biology, computers, and electronics. His graduate work focused on the real-time measurement of visual and auditory evoked potentials, and relationships with selective attention in a vigilance task.

He then spent 8 years with AT&T Bell Laboratories as a technical staff member and supervisor in the areas of integrated circuit technology, computer graphics, networking, and man/machine interfaces. He then served from 1988 to 1996 on the Staff of the Department of Neurology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, where he conducted research and development in EEG mapping for epilepsy surgery, long-term EEG monitoring, and DC brain potentials. As a consultant to industry, he has designed software and hardware for computerized tomography, automated radiometry, and automated imaging.

Since 1995, Doctor Collura has been founder and president of BrainMaster Technologies, Inc. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, abstracts, and papers. He holds 3 patents and has 3 patents pending, all in the areas of neurofeedback, electrode technology, and evoked potential methods and systems. His current interests focus on research and development of automated neurofeedback systems, evoked potential neurofeedback, and low-cost quantitative EEG. He is also Past President of the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR). He is a licensed mental health counselor (LPC), and Clinical Director of the Brain Enrichment Center, Bedford, OH. He is the author of “Technical Foundations of Neurofeedback” published in 2013 by Taylor & Francis / Routledge
