Ben en Wytze,


Het stond in de Gelderlander, de lokale krant hier.

Ik ben een kopietje van dat artikel aan het regelen. Of Berrie, zou jij me
een kopietje op kunnen sturen van dat artikel?

Hello to  All,


a full page article on Neurofeedback was published yesterday in one of the
biggest newspapers! Very informative for the general public. So, yes, the
word is spreading!

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.


I'm sure that such exposure is not only possible, but probable if we all
just keep writing press releases!  There have been a few radio broadcasts
and a few press features - the last big one that springs to mind was in the
New Scientist 3 March 2001 (featuring both Americans and Europeans -
Sterman, Rosenfeld, Birbaumer, Gruzelier & Egner) written by Laura Spinney
from LONDON. Time to remind her about on-going developments, perhaps..? 


Even writing for small local newspapers and magazines can be fruitful as
these stories may fire the imagination of more influential writers on  more
widely-read publications. So, yes, Ann - let's all just keep making a little
noise.  The 'drip drip' effect is powerful. And I don't believe it is an
exclusive province of America, Jorge!


Just to encourage one another - if members are aware of, or indeed, have
written, articles for the media, perhaps these could be shared on the esnr
site (although, of course, unlike the USA, we don't have the advantage of a
common language...)  What do you think?
