Orlando, Florida - January 26 - 27, 2019

Vietta “Sue” Wilson, Ph.D. is a world- renowned performance enhancement specialist, considered by many to be the “grandmother” of biofeedback/neurofeedback in sport. She has dedicated much of her career to researching the connection between stress and its effect on physical health and mental performance. Her expertise is in the teaching of brief skills validated by psychophysiology to allow elite athletes, executives, and everyday people to perform optimally.

Dr. Wilson retired in 2005 from York University’s School of Kinesiology and Health Sciences in Toronto after 30 years of teaching and research in sport psychology, learned self-regulation, and counseling. She has worked with over 50 world and Olympic athletes from competitors in the 1976 Olympiad in Montreal to those in the Rio games in 2016. She has also utilized her unique performance optimizing methods with top executives, performers, and other individuals who want to improve focus, minimize distractions, and reduce stress.

Dr. Wilson is known for her research in psychophysiological profiling and EEG brain mapping of elite performers and is a co-author of Learned Self Regulation, Owners Manual for the Brain. She also developed the popular Optimizing Performance and Health Suite software for the BioGraph Infiniti instrument. Her recent projects have included providing mental training for Canada’s Paralympic archers, tennis clubs, and individual athletes including gymnasts, hockey players, and figure skaters. She is presently developing a program for home based, self- training of integrated biofeedback/neurofeedback with self regulation skills for surgeons.
