Its really hard to have personal opinions on edducational books... i mean, if theyre really aweful and inaccurate because your textbook is from the 60's or something then sure. I guess you can dis/agree on methods or the general principle of something... or maybe if it were poorly organized... but this book wasnt bad, a little dry but i read it purly to imput knowledge into my brain for my job and for the sake of knowledge itself so i wasnt expecting the author to be scintillating or anything.

This is exactly the book I wanted on the subject. Good quantitative background and review of brain functions. Properly referenced. It's a textbook instead of an anecdotal feel goodery.

Whole thing might still be quackish, however. I'll let you know GOODREADS

Not much available in neurofeedback. This did a good job of diving into the field at a general level, while also providing a taste of depth. Call it the "101" of the study.

“In 1989, Eugene Peniston and Paul Kulkosky used a specific neurofeedback protocol for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They facilitated twilight states of learning by rewarding both alpha and theta. Their protocol has come to be called deep-states training (Robbins, 2000a). Guided visualizations and skin temperature (ST) training were also part of the protocol design. The first landmark study included a small population of Vietnam veterans. Two years later Peniston and Kulkosky studied the effect of neurofeedback training with veterans who had dual diagnoses of alcoholism and PTSD. Both studies had positive outcomes (Peniston & Kulkosky, 1999). They” 0 likes
