Dear All,
Last week was an interesting week for neurofeedback in the US.  Dr Phil, a 
psychologist and associate of Oprah Winfrey who now has his own very widely 
viewed chat show, did a program on neurofeedback.  He was educated at the 
University of North Texas, one of the few universities in the US to have a 
program dedicated to research into neurofeedback.  On the show last week, he 
had one of his professors from the university talking about neurofeedback for 
children with ADHD.

Also, Newsweek, one of the largest weekly news magazines in the country, had an 
article on neurofeedback based on technology that was developed by NASA, the 
American space agency.  I've attached the article to this email.  Note that it 
mentions that a peer-reviewed study is expected by year-end.  The study was 
done with this technology by Roger DeBeus, who was also educated at the 
University of N Texas and is president-elect of iSNR.  Business Week, another 
weekly news magazine, also recently ran an article on Roger's study.

If this can happen in the US, where the drug companies are extremely 
powerful--2nd only to the oil industry, this sort of exposure is surely 
possible here in Europe.
