Books about Changing the Brain
Even though neurofeedback has been around since the early 1960’s, many books about changing the brain have been written by third party advocates and others who just wanted to research the brain and how it works. Because of the advancement of technology all fields of science and research have greatly increased the application of neurofeedback to the consumer. These advancements have led to an easier application of neurofeedback and this is especially true in LENS (Low Energy Neurofeedback Systems). LENS is safest, most effective and efficient system on the market today and as listed below are some great third party books explaining why.
I would suggest Symphony in the Brain as a beginning book as it gives a great history of neurofeedback and how it has helped millions of people. From there I would suggest, The Healing Power of Neurofeedback and the Neurofeedback Solution.
Enjoy your reading and if you should ever have a need for LENS neurofeedback, please give us a call.
