No, I don't attritbute my improvement to a placebo effect from a caring practitioner. I've seen quite a few caring practitioners, conventional and unconventional, over the years, and most of them have failed to help me.

I'm familiar with the Christain Jarrett article you're quoting from. It's based largely on the writings of the late Barry Beyerstein. Both Jarrett's and Beyerstein's understanding of neurofeedback is very shallow. For example, they seem to think that neurofeedback is all about increasing the amplitude of alpha waves (8-12 hertz). One of the several goals of my neurofeedback protocol was to decrease the amplitude of alpha waves.

Here's a rebuttal to Jarrett's article:

If you're interested in learning about neurofeedback, read A Symphony in the Brain by Jim Robbins. He's a science writer for The New York Times.
