These data make the case that delayed responses in a Go/NoGo paradigm can be described as the long tail of normal, scale-free temporal organization of states.

The Reduction to Practice Our own clinical work has focused mainly on clinical conditions. However, we have seen a number of clients over the years whose objective was purely the enhancement of their competences. This was particularly true of golfers. Encouraged by an early report of Dan Chartier that he was succeeding in reducing golf handicaps rather substantially with neurofeedback, we took on a local golfer who aspired to the international tour. We got excellent reporting from him on how he saw various aspects of his game impacted by the training.

The predominant thrust in neurofeedback has been to address a variety of clinical conditions. This was not always so. Ironically, it was EEG biofeedback that provided the first impetus for the formation of a biofeedback organization in the United States in 1969. Joe Kamiya’s work with alpha training was the inspiration, and the interest was mainly around the question of EEG correlates of psychological states rather than the remediation of functional pathology. Kamiya himself never worked with clinical populations, and the groups that Kamiya inspired early on were not primarily oriented toward expunging functional deficits either.
