Restoring the Brain: Neurofeedback as an Integrative Approach
Neurofeedback as an Integrative Approach describes the history and process by which neurofeedback has become an effective tool for treating many mental and behavioral health conditions. It explains how new brain research and improvements in imaging technology allow for a new conceptualization of the brain. It also discusses how biomedical factors can degrade brain functioning and cause a wide range of symptoms of mental disorders.
A Symphony in the Brain
Discovered by a small corps of research scientists, this alternative treatment allows a patient to see real-time measurements of their bodily processes. Its advocates claim biofeedback can treat epilepsy, autism, attention deficit disorder, addictions, and depression with no drugs or side effects; bring patients out of vegetative states, even improve golf scores or an opera singer’s voice. But biofeedback has faced battles for acceptance in the conservative medical world despite positive signs that it could revolutionize the way an incredibly diverse range of medical and psychological problems are treated. Offering a wealth of powerful case studies, accessible scientific explanations, and dramatic personal accounts, Robbins remarkable history develops our understanding of this important field.
Neurofeedback: The First Fifty Years
Neurofeedback: The First Fifty Years features broadly recognized pioneers in the field sharing their views and contributions on the history of neurofeedback. With some of the pioneers of neurofeedback already passed on or aging, this book brings together the monumental contributions of renowned researchers and practitioners in an unprecedented, comprehensive volume. With the rapid and exciting advances in this dynamic field, this information is critical for neuroscientists, neurologists, neurophysiologists, cognitive and developmental psychologists and other practitioners, providing a clear presentation of the frontiers of this exciting and medically important area of physiology.

10 Things You Need To Know About How Your Brain Works Best
I ran across a Huffington Post article today by Eileen Chadnick which lists 10 things to know about how your brain works best. From managing stress to how to focus, this is a great list to look over. My favorites are the myth of multitasking and making lists (don’t keep it all in your head).
Changing Education with Ritalin
I am very interested in how discoveries in neuroscience can affect changes in our educational system to make it more responsive to the needs of our kids and how they actually learn.
