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?
