Fu-Zen Shaw has interested in establishment of animal models of epilepsy and fibromyalgia and also provides valuable non-pharmacological interventions for ameliorating seizures through closed-loop deep brain stimulation or for enhancing wellbeing of healthy people and patients with insomnia or mild cognitive impairment through self-training of brain rhythms. Recently, he develops a neurofeedback platform to train alpha rhythm with a sham-controlled group to validate controllability, specificity and independence of the neurofeedback training. Dr. Shaw also provides convinced evidence about trained alpha rhythm on enhancement of both working memory and semantic episodic memory. This study extends our understanding on effect of trained frontoparietal alpha rhythm on episodic memory of object recognition. The global effect of trained alpha rhythm may create potential insight on boosting human wellbeing.
