Reviews:

 “This book is the best introduction to neurofeedback I have ever seen. It is written in a way that is both comprehensive and accessible making it an invaluable resource for both new and experienced practitioners. I can confidently say that Getting Started with EEG Neurofeedback will be my new “go to” reference and required reading for my trainees. ”
Jeff Tarrant, PhD, BCN, Director NeuroMeditation Institute, author of Meditation-Based Interventions to Rewire the Brain

 

“In Getting Started with Neurofeedback, Second Edition, John Demos has crafted a text providing information that goes well beyond what its title implies. Indeed, this book is an excellent resource for those relatively new to the field; but beyond that it is useful as a reference for those who are experienced. The latter chapters are a sagacious guide about all aspects of practice. The book is replete with excellent clinical examples.”
Dick A. Genardi, PhD, BCN, Clinical Associate Professor, Wright State Univ. School of Professional Psychology, Neuropsychologist, NeuroBehavioralHealth Associates, Dayton Ohio

 

“Thank you very much John Demos. This book offers a lot of useful and really important information as well for beginners and advanced Neurofeedback practitioners. Besides classical standard applications, it gives a very detailed overview of newer approaches like Z-Score-Training based on quantitative EEG measures from several sources and databases. It´s a must have for everyone who practices Neurofeedback and I definitely will recommend is a required reading for all our attendees of our workshops.”
Thomas F. Feiner, BCIA BCN, Director of the Institute for EEG-Neurofeedback Germany


Description:

The long-awaited update to Demos’s classic book for the practitioner looking to add neurofeedback.

Neurofeedback training combines the principles of complementary medicine with the power of electronics. This book provides lucid explanations of the mechanisms underlying neurofeedback as well as the research history that led to its implementation. Essential for all clinicians in this field, this book will guide clinicians through the process of diagnosis and treatment.
