Author, neurologist, and neuropsychiatrist Werner Van den Bergh, M.D. recently talked with Christopher Fisher, PhD (CEO of this website’s sister company, BMED Press) about his newly released book, “Neurofeedback and State Regulation in ADHD: A Therapy Without Medication” (published by BMED Press).
Briefly, Dr. Van den Bergh discusses his motivation for writing this excellent book. He explains how the “Berlin psychiatry school of the EEG vigilance” significantly influenced his training and research and helped guide him to many of the novel findings contained in his writings, particularly the relationship of sleep disturbance to ADHD.
He further expresses concern about the future of neurofeedback and calls on practitioners to make more reasoned claims about the treatment of various disorders with neurofeedback, as well as to adapt a theory-driven (as opposed to data-driven) interpretation of the EEG.
