Case Studies in Applied Psychophysiology: Neurofeedback and Biofeedback Treatments for Advances in Human Performance

Case Studies in Applied Psychophysiology: Neurofeedback and Biofeedback Treatments for Advances in Human Performance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many practitioners use biofeedback (BFB) and neurofeedback (NFB) to help individuals bring their personal goals of optimizing performance in domains such as music, dance, sports, and exercise within reach.

Written by veterans in the field, Case Studies in Applied Psychophysiology is the first text to present case-studies from practitioners utilizing these techniques.  Each case study has been systematically recorded and presents readers with a comprehensive overview of each approach. The case studies demonstrate not only the variety of approaches available to practitioners, but also the unique tailoring of techniques and procedures that seasoned practitioners implement to help clients achieve their goals. The primary focus is on individuals from non-clinical (i.e. not medically related) populations, but two case studies describe neurofeedback interventions with individuals suffering from traumatic brain injuries.

Case Studies in Applied Psychophysiology is a useful introduction to the field, as well as a road map for those looking to incorporate these techniques into their own psychology, sports medicine, physiology, performance psychology, and counseling practices.

Synopsis:

A thorough, readable primer for the practitioner and student, detailing case studies on the art and science of biofeedback and neurofeedback in practice.

  • Includes case-study examples focusing directly on improving human performance in non-clinical populations utilizing biofeedback and neurofeedback techniques
  • Links theory and practice for scholars and practitioners in the field
  • Acknowledges both the art and science of utilizing these tools for performance-related gains in sports and artistic fields, presenting unique case studies detailing the variety of procedures used
  • Offers comprehensive coverage of key topics and procedures in an emerging field
