Software Demonstrations 
During software demonstration, I will explore the GUI-based multi-processing open-source framework for real-time fMRI neurofeedback training and quality assessment, termed OpenNFT [1,2] (Fig. 1; This framework is based on the platform-independent interpreted programming languages Python and Matlab to facilitate concurrent functionality, high modularity, and the ability to extend the software in Python or Matlab depending on programming preferences, research questions, and clinical application. The core programing engine is Python, which provides larger functionality and flexibility than Matlab. Based on this core, Matlab processes are integrated to add specific functions.
