An exciting new book that documents the early development of biofeedback/neurofeedback is now available for pre-order with a $5.00 discount and free shipping: Joe Kamiya: Thinking Inside the Box
Joe Kamiya: Thinking Inside the Box will fill your heart with promise, optimism, and cheer. Joe Kamiya is a philosopher and scientist. The authors share an appreciation for Joe’s contributions to the field of EEG discovery, operant conditioning, and neuromodulation. As one of the forefathers of neurofeedback, Joe led the way for us to apply this intervention not only from a clinical view, but also from a personal and self-realizational perspective. The authors enjoyed many weekly phone meetings, talking with Joe and his wife, and partner in research, Joanne, which are presented in an interview-style format. Joe and his family talk about their past, their discoveries, the present (at this writing, he is 94 years young), and their future hopes for our field, which is to consider teaching self-actualizing skills to children, possibly in the school setting, and to use neuromodulation as a tool for self-regulation for human improvement, in addition to for clinical uses.
