For key information about brainwave biofeedback (also called EEG biofeedback and Neurofeedback), you are directed to the website of the EEG Institute of Southern California (www.eeginfo.com).  There you will find video clips and excellent references covering many different disorders.

Additional information may also be found on the websites of EEG Spectrum International (www.eegspectrum.com) and the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (www.ISNR.org). The latter provides a frequently updated Comprehensive Bibliography of outcomes and evidence-based Neurofeedback research. 

 

[1] This book was written specifically about autistic spectrum children.  Although it may seem irrelevant on the face of it if the presenting concern seems to have little or nothing to do with autism, the biochemistry described is appropriate to consider in many other circumstances.
