Jacket Description/Back:
HEALTH / WELLNESS "An essential tool for mind-brain science." --Joseph Kamiya, Ph.D., father of EEG biofeedback/neurofeedback and former professor of medical psychology at the University of California, San Francisco "A brilliant book, full of amazing stories and cogent explanations." --Thom Hartmann, radio host, TV journalist, and author of The Edison Gene What is neurofeedback? How does it work? And how can it help me or my family? In this guide to neurofeedback, psychologist and neurofeedback clinician Stephen Larsen examines the countless benefits of neurofeedback for diagnosing and treating many of the most debilitating and now pervasive psychological and neurological ailments, including autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, stroke, brain injury, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Surveying the work of neurofeedback pioneers, Larsen explains the techniques and advantages of different neurofeedback methods--from the LENS technique and HEG to Z-score training and Slow Cortical Potentials. He reveals evidence of neuroplasticity--the brain's ability to grow new neurons--and shows how neurofeedback can nourish the aging brain and help treat degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's and strokes. Examining the different types of brain waves, he shows how to recognize our own dominant brain wave range and thus learn to exercise control over our mental states. He explains how to combine neurofeedback with breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, and attention-control exercises such as Open Focus. Sharing successful and almost miraculous case studies of neurofeedback patients from a broad range of backgrounds, including veterans and neglected children, this book shows how we can nurture our intimate relationship with the brain, improving emotional, cognitive, and creative flexibility as well as mental health. STEPHEN LARSEN, Ph.D., LMHC, BCIA-eeg, is professor emeritus of psychology at SUNY Ulster, board-certified in EEG biofeedback, and the author of several books, including The Healing Power of Neurofeedback and The Fundamentalist Mind.
