A Symphony in the Brain: The Evolution of the New Brain Wave Biofeedback
In A Symphony in the Brain, Jim Robbins traces the fascinating story of the development of neurofeedback, from its discovery by a small corps of research scientists to its growing application 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 the technique. 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.
