Introduction to Quantitative EEG and Neurofeedback: Advanced Theory and Applications

When the first edition of Introduction to Quantitative EEG and Neurofeedback was published in 1999, it was the only book available providing a broad overview of the field of neurofeedback (NF) and the use of quantitative EEG (QEEG) in relation- ship to that field.Although since then at least three other texts have been published which deal in depth with neurofeedback (and, to some degree, with QEEG), the many recent advances in neurofeedback-related areas warrant an updated second edition. Since the basics of QEEG and neurofeedback are available elsewhere, the chapters in this edition emphasize recent thinking regarding mechanisms of efficacy of NF, advances in QEEG and its application to NF, advances in use of neurofeed- back with many disorders covered in the first edition as well as new clinical appli- cations, current status of auditory-visual entrainment (AVE) and other procedures often used in conjunction with traditional NF, and an update on ethical concerns in the practice of NF.As with the first edition,chapters are authored by current leaders in the field, many of whom are among the early “pioneers.”
The last ten years have seen a rapid growth of the field of NF both in the US and internationally. Practitioners can be found in at least 27 countries, and membership of the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) has grown by 51% during the past five years. Keeping pace with this growth has been the evolution of clinical practice and research. New QEEG databases have been developed, and older ones refined with the addition of new measures of potential clinical relevance (e.g. phase reset, co-modulation). Older and newer QEEG measures of neural connectivity have received increasing attention, and improved methods of determining cortical and sub-cortical areas of dysfunction from the EEG (e.g. LORETA) are now available.
