The Neurofeedback Solution: How to Treat Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, Brain Injury, Stroke, PTSD and More  

by Stephen Larsen, Ph.D. — 

In this guide to neurofeedback, Larsen examines its countless benefits in diagnosing and treating many of the most debilitating and now pervasive psychological and neurological ailments, including autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, stroke, brain injury, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Surveying the work of neurofeedback pioneers, he explains the techniques and advantages of different neurofeedback methods — from the LENS technique and HEG, to Z-score training and Slow Cortical Potentials.

Larson reveals evidence of neuroplasticity — the brain’s ability to grow new neurons — and shows how neurofeedback can nourish the aging brain and help treat degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s and strokes.

By examining the different types of brainwaves, he shows us how to recognize our own dominant brainwave range and thus learn to exercise control over our mental states; and explains how to combine neurofeedback with breathwork, mindfulness, meditation and attention-control exercises such as Open Focus.

Sharing successful and almost miraculous case studies of neurofeedback patients from a broad range of backgrounds, including veterans and neglected children, this book reveals how we can nurture our intimate relationship with the brain, improving emotional, cognitive and creative flexibility, as well as mental health.
