I would like to develop neurofeedback software. Can you tell me what degree would be best for me? (psychology, neurology, biomedical research)?

Choices

Open-uri20130819-28443-7n0az8
There are multiple ways to prepare yourself to do this. Neurology requires a medical degree (MD or DO) plus 1 year of Internal Medicine internship, then 3 more years in Neurology residency. Psychology education varies depending on how you mean to use it -- but you'll need a PhD to do independent research. Biomedical Engineers typically have an MS or PhD to do this kind of research & development

what's contingency management in psychology?

Reinforcement

Open-uri20120702-18883-6myef4
In Applied Behavioral Analysis it is the arranging of contingencies in order to produce a specified behavior. As a treatment for mental disorders or substance abuse, behaviors are rewarded (or sometimes punished). If a reward (or + reinforcer) is given, it is in response to (or contingent upon) a desirable target behavior.

Dr. John Holmberg answered:

In psychology, how to know if someone is lying ?

Can and can't

Chest-heart
What makes poker fun is - you really can't tell reliably when someone is lying. If the person lying has a negative emotional response because they are lying, they may have sympathetic nervous system signs - heart rate, flushing skin, averted eye contact, word finding problems & more confusing (non-direct) language,also may be avoidant or confrontative. Knowing the person well helps detect changes

Dr. Kevin M. Nasky answered:

What kind of therapy is Christian psychology?

Therapy + Christian

Psychiatrist
Christian therapists are not a homogenous group in terms of psychoanalytical orientation and technique. Someone who advertises their services as a "Christian" therapist is usually a therapist (of any psychoanalytical persuasion) who integrates Christianity-based spiritual counseling into their psychotherapeutic work.
