Hello Stephanie:

This is a very powerful and exciting manifesto. I look forward to reading and learning more

Dr. Karen Shue

Although I'm glad to see the idea of "self-directed neuroplasticity" come up here, I'm disappointed that there is no mention of a whole field of neuroscience that looks at taking advantage of our ability to direct our plasticity through biofeedback. The field of neurofeedback, or brain-based biofeedback, both as an area of scientific research and as an applied area of practice has been using this concept for decades and helping people change their lives by its application.

Yet here, and in Norman Doidge's popular book, The Brain that Changes Itself (though that's not your fault ;-), there is no mention of the field as existing at all. From the perspective of a neurofeedback practitioner, it feels as if the neuroplasticity field is re-discovering the wheel in some ways and missing the contributions that could made by collaborating instead of working independently.

For more information about neurofeedback, people may be interested in the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research at http://www.isnr.org.

Thanks --
