Neurofeedback Has a Long History

Neurofeedback Has a Long History

Posted on: August 18th, 2016 by Neurohealth Associates

Neurofeedback in various forms and under different names has been around in part for almost 100 years. Naturally the modern neurofeedback has evolved to what it is today through many advances in technology and discoveries from the neurology and scientific community.

Electroencephalography (EEG) was not truly popularized until the 1960’s but EEG and Quantitative EEG (QEED) had been an area of study for many neurologists, physiologists, psychiatrists, and scientists since the late 1800’s when they would primarily test on animals, that is until Hans Berger recorded the first EEG performed on a human in 1924.

Since then it has steadily grown throughout the last century for treatment of various ailments most notably epilepsy, that is until late 20th century it started being used for conditions like ADD/ADHD, Anger, Anxiety, Autism, Depression, Motivation Problems, and more.

See what a popular Autism information center has to say about its successes with regard to autism treatment here.

Neurofeedback has since made several leaps forward in respect to its popularity. For more on that as well as more depth on its history see a very recent Newsweek article.

Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression.
