Episode 3: Neurofeedback and Consciousness

In this episode, John interviews Thomas Fink, PhD about the basic concepts of neurofeedback, its clinical utility, and case examples.  Dr. Fink developed software for a home unit to augment gains made in the office. The purpose of this podcast is to help psychologists become more familiar with this neurofeedback in the practice of psychotherapy.  Additionally, the podcast will address how neurofeedback offers novel conceptualizations of consciousness.

At the end of the podcast, the listener will be able to:

1. Explain the basic concepts of neurofeedback.
2. Describe two clinical conditions that can be treated with neurofeedback.
3. Provide one example of how neurofeedback informs us about the nature of 
      consciousness.
