Dr. Ochs is a clinical neuropsychophysiologist with over thirty years’ experience as a psychologist, 30 years’ experience in behavioral medicine, and 25 years of involvement in the development of computerized biofeedback instrumentation. With a Ph.D. in social psychology and extensive formal clinical and school psychology training, he has been nationally recognized for the pioneering contributions he has made to computerized biofeedback and school psychology.

A computerized biofeedback system he developed in 1978 has toured the US as part of the APA exhibit on the brain and is now housed at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
He has also developed a unique view of how to work with feelings, manage difficult ones, as well as develop an idea of the significance of feelings.
His current work explores the interaction of EEG activity and advanced treatment planning for neurofeedback. He currently investigates new treatments for psychological and mechanical nervous system trauma, as well as new ways to measure improvement in functioning, and develops new ways to use EEG data to visualize brain activity. In October of 2014 he was awarded the Joel F. Lubar award for his pioneering contributions to neurofeedback by the ISNR.
