"Wonderful opportunity. Positive learning environment. Technically on target, practical, good depth. I appreciated inclusion of theoretical and philosophical discussion. Super learning experience." - Dick A. Genardi, Ph.D., Director Behavioral Health Associates, Inc.,Dayton, Ohio

There have been scores of books written on Biofeedback, Neurofeedback and Applied Psychophysiology. We introduce you to those we feel are the best and most relevant of them through our training,website etc.
New books for the general public and several for professionals have been published recently. Most of the focus at present is on Neurofeedback because it is the most dramatic and fastest growing type of biofeedback. One of those books is our own, MINDFITNESS TRAINING: Neurofeedback and The Process.

There have been thousands of scientific studies in this field - many of them published in the most refereed journals in their respective disciplines. Some world class scientists, practitioners and neurophilosophers believe that biofeedback and neurofeedback discoveries rank among the most important technological, educational and medical breakthroughs of the last several centuries. If you consider that self-knowledge and heuristic (self) learning are generally considered to be the most important skills most human beings can develop, then it is easy to understand why biofeedback is receiving so much attention.

The simplest explanation is that biofeedback is the use of instrumentation to feed back information about the psychophysiology (mind and body) of a human being to him or herself. Given this information most individuals can increase their control (self-regulation) of whatever activity is being monitored. Things begin to get exciting when we look into the implications of these extraordinary levels of control and what the benefits are to those learning these high levels of self-regulation.

The resulting profound mind/body changes are applicable to over four hundred common clinical disorders and the list is growing continuously. There are also extraordinary applications to Performance and Life Enhancement. This means there are many forms of biofeedback and many types of instrumentation. Some of the most common are: electromyograph (EMG) Electrical activity of the muscles (Voluntary Nervous System), Electroencephalograph (EEG) Electrical activity of the brain (Central Nervous System), Temperature (TEMP) Peripheral blood flow, Electrodermal Response (EDR, SCR, GSR, etc., Sweat Gland activity, Heart Rate (HR) including the extraordinarily exciting new field of neurocardiology), and Blood Pressure (BP) all Autonomic Nervous System measures. Applied Psychophysiology is the large field of study of the mind and body and the practical applications of that research. Biofeedback and Transactional Psychophysiology are important parts of this greater field.
