Neurofeedback offers exciting potential for understanding the brain and human behavior as well as the treatment of epilepsy and ADHD. Its rich history, from the discovery of the EEG in 1875, via the beginnings of the field of neurofeedback in 1936, to the foundation of the clinical application in the summer of 1969 is finally brought to life.

It's a compelling read, often from an eyewitness account, in which we meet an eccentric Wallstreet millionaire, a telepathy-inspired psychiatrist, a Soviet scientist’s encounter with Stalin, a British Baron, a former street gang member and a group of forward thinking West Coast scientists.
Discover how they all played a vital role in shaping the future of neuroscience and neurofeedback.

toelichtingExcellent introduction to the origins of neurofeedback, from the early experiments in the Soviet Union, Germany and the US to the discovery of rTMS. Contains many illustrations and biographical material of EEG pioneers like Hans Berger. Also contains the introduction to Maurice B. Stermans' 1963 PhD, which paved the way to our present understanding of SMR.
