Provides lucid explanations of the mechanisms underlying neurofeedback as well as the research history that led to its implementation. -- PsycCritiques, Frank Masterpasqua

While he discussed in-depth the complexities of NF, it's very understandable.

I had bought this book with high hopes based on the reviews and description. Make no mistake, this is a user's manual for several types of specific equipment (EEG-type) with very little background on how to interpret the readings or, more generally, on the various aspects of the neurofeedback field, or other methods of neurofeedback. This is a book by a pratitioner for a starting practitioner (dealing with how to set-up electrodes, how to read charts, a summary of a couple dated EEG systems, and how to choose an office space).

It does NOT cover in any detail theory or discuss latest research. Even as a reference for equipment/setup a quick internet search revealed several much more advanced systems available that were not even mentioned by the book. The book references DOS-based systems and alludes to Windows based systems.

If you are starting a business in this area and already have a firm grasp on the fundamnetals of this field then perhaps this book MIGHT be helpful, but anyone looking for an in-depth treatement of the wide range of neurofeedback techniques and/or comprehensive treatment of brain physiology/activity under different conditions should steer clear of this book - you will be disappointed. I am just glad Amamzon refunded my money.

In the field of neurofeedback there are very few books that actually explain how to do neurofeedback. Most of the existing books are about theory and not method. John Demos has put together a book that is based on a sophisticated understanding of the method of neurofeedback and at the same time very readable. Within these pages are the simple and straightforward explanations of what needs to be done, why it needs to be done and how to do it. His explanations are clear and lucid. The careful organization of this text provides the reader with a progressive exposure to concepts that culminates in a comprehensive picture of the practice of neurofeedback. The theory and method he presents is well grounded in the existing literature and reflects a thorough exploration of the topic as well as considerable first hand clinical experience. This is the book that clinicians entering the field will be searching for as they travel from workshop to workshop in search of a comprehensive approach. As an author, clinician, and teacher in the field of neurofeedback I am acutely aware of the extensive effort and care it required to produce such a text and I highly recommend it to everyone in the field.

I've been working at a neurofeedback tech for nearly a year now and I have been researching and learning about NF for two years. This is the most comprehensive source I have found. While he discussed in-depth the complexities of NF, it's very understandable. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a practioner but it might get a bit too involved to recommend to clients.

Format: Hardcover
John Demos' "Getting Started with Neurofeedback" is an unusually thorough, concise, informative, and practical book on the practice of neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback). This is one of the most succinct introductions to the field that I have seen, and it also includes a wealth of practical information. Ultimately, it provides sufficient background and applications information to allow one with relevant qualifications to begin working in this area. It would be an excellent text resource for a formal training program, as well. This covers a wide range of approaches and philosophies, and is unique in that it does not simply espouse one approach. Rather, it puts many approaches in perspective, and allows the reader to make intelligent decisions regarding when, how, and in what manner one wants to apply neurofeedback therapy. It includes basic neurophysiology and anatomy, the value of brain maps and mini-assessments, and practical considerations for formulating treatment plans, configuring and using equipment, and interpreting results. Really a "must have" for anyone in the field of neurofeedback, considering entering this field, or any seriously curious student who wants to understand this emerging and changing area.

33 of 39 people found the following review helpful By Robert Kall VINE VOICE on August 24, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is the latest book on neurofeedback and reports the state of the art as of 2005. The author takes the basic protocols used by the majority of the field and then integrates qEEG, one of the fastest growing approaches to neurofeedback. Another reviewer calls qEEG "outdated." This is an outrageous, misleading statement, at best. qEEG IS controversial and not all practitioners use it. My own opinion on qEEG is that it is very often useful and sometimes essential, partifcularly for traumatic brain injury, as the book states, but not always necessary. I also believe that non-qEEG approaches can be very effective. But suggesting that qEEG outdated is, just plain wrong.

This book provides a wide range of different perspectives at a very affordable price, offering the entry level and novice practitioner of neurofeedback a wealth of state of the art information. Any practitioner getting started with neurofeedback would be advised to invest in this book. Rob Kall, organizer of the Futurehealth Winter Brain Meeting, world's largest neurofeedback meeting and editor/executive producer of the Introduction to EEG Biofeedback/ Neurofeedback Foundations Course DVD set (available on amazon) Another book worth checking out is the Neurofeedback book by Lynda and Michael Thompson.
