WHY ISN'T NEUROFEEDBACK

BETTER KNOWN?

The Earth is Round not Flat

“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance. This principle is: contempt prior to investigation.”  

– Herbert Spencer 

 

Neurofeedback came into being in the 1970s, and with it, a substantial body of quality research has been compiled, yet concepts that are completely new to current ways of thinking take time to be understood and well-received.  It took many centuries for scholars to accept the Earth is round, not flat.  Sometimes entire generations of professionals in a particular field must be renewed for new thinking to emerge in the field, willing to look at new concepts & research, often with pressure from the people, not from interest within academic institutions.  As the field is refreshed with scientists raised with contemporary understanding that the brain indeed continues to have elasticity throughout life, plus newer access to imaging like fMRI, PET Scan, Brain Mapping, doctors' understanding of brain plasticity evolves innately, not dogmatic to outdated paradigms. Brain research has focused mostly on the chemical effects to the electrochemical system in the brain, and Neurofeedback addresses the electrical rewiring approach for brain self- regulation  & re-regulation, which is extraordinarily safe, yet also very powerful. 

 

"A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."  - Max Planck

 

 

Research and development:  The process of funding works against new modalities. Corporate & government interest and funding favors, and is allotted, to what is already known and expected.  It is well known that  the pharmaceutical industry focuses mainly on new uses for the existing drugs, as it is faster and cheaper to gain patents and FDA approval for current drugs, rather than research and development for new, thus very few 'new' drugs come to the market.  For the venture capitalist, pharmaceutical drug research is considerably more lucrative for the investor than investing in Neurofeedback and other natural methods of healing, where there is minimal investment potential.  Vitamin and herb research is at a minimum because natural substances are not patentable, thus no financial incentive exists. For these reasons and more, funding the research and promotion of new modalities is slow, and public and private sector is slow to learn the benefits of preventative medicine and healing modalities, which ultimately are the future. Thanks to many researchers and who have devoted their careers and practices to Neurofeedback research and development, we are lucky to have such a safe and powerful healing modality available. 

The natural force in each one of us

is the greatest force in getting well. - Hippocrates
