Overview

Imagine a simple procedure versatile enough to treat epilepsy, autism, attention-deficit disorder, addictions, and depression with no drugs, surgery, or side effects, and to improve everything from golf scores to sleep to opera singers' voices. These are only some of the capabilities of neurofeedback, a controversial but effective treatment that is growing rapidly in use around the world and is revolutionizing the way an incredibly diverse range of medical and psychological conditions are treated. For more than twenty years a small handful of neurofeedback practitioners have achieved dramatic results in thousands of cases. Using computerized biofeedback equipment and capitalizing on recent scientific research that illustrates the profound plasticity of the brain, clinicians train patients to function in brain frequencies they don't usually use. This exercise strengthens the brain and the rest of the nervous system, with powerful effects on the entire body. Yet, because of the unusual nature of the procedure and the boldness of their claims, proponents of neurofeedback have found it nearly impossible to convince the medical field to take the treatment seriously. This situation, however, is changing. In A Symphony in the Brain, Jim Robbins traces the fascinating, untold story of the development of neurofeedback, from its discovery by a small corps of research scientists to its growing application across the country and around the world, to the contentious history of biofeedback in the 1970s, to present battles for acceptance in the medical and psychological community. He builds a compelling argument for research funding for neurotherapy and shows how almost anyone can gain from thetechnique. Offering a wealth of powerful case studies, accessible scientific explanations, and dramatic personal accounts, Robbins journeys through a remarkable field, which he brings to the public eye for the first time.

    Best Introduction to Neurofeedback Written

    Mr. Robbins has written an excellent book on the issue of neurofeedback and what it can do in treating various mental and physical illnesses. He achieved three primary goals in writing this book. First, he tells what neurofeedback therapy can do for individuals who are suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome, ADD/ADHD, minor closed head injury, sleep disorders, and a hundred other problems. Robbins also writes a factual and insightful history of the whole field. In the process, he describes the people because he met and talked to almost all of them in doing his research. Finally, he does a good job of explaining why the research in the field has not been adequately funded and disseminated. This aspect of the book is very valuable because it points out why this process has not become widespread. As a result of reading this book, I just took six days of training in neurofeedback and purchased a system that I can use to treat myself and my family. Read it! You will be amazed at the practical applications of neurofeedback to your world.
