Recently, I was asked to contribute to a chapter on EEG Neurofeedback for a text on Psychiatry and Alternative Medicine to be published by the American Psychiatric Association Press. Since I had promised in my last blog to write more about EEG feedback, I have decided to post the chapter contribution here. NEUROFEEDBACK IN A PSYCHIATRIC PRACTICE […]
