Another piece from The Current. About the controversial use of neurofeedback to treat childhood ADD – the radical idea here being we can learn to self-regulate our own mental processes using nothing but a few EEG leads and a computer program. It’s the late 20th century version of something meditators have been practicing for centuries. Although the technology is still crude, as it improves along with our understanding of brain activity, neurofeedback may be able to target virtually any module in the brain, something I speculate about in Head Trip.
