Now in a fully revised and updated third edition, this comprehensive text offers state-of-the-science coverage of current biofeedback research, applications, clinical procedures, and biomedical instrumentation. Existing chapters have been restructured and extensively rewritten, some with new authorship, and 11 entirely new chapters added. Like the previous edition, the book describes approaches to treating a wide range of clinical problems, including musculoskeletal pain, headaches, temporomandibular disorders, fibromyalgia, Raynaud's disease, and more. New chapters include coverage of pediatric headaches, pelvic floor-related disorders, and applications for athletes and musicians. In addition, significant advances in EEG applications are reflected in four new chapters devoted exclusively to this area. With contributions from leading experts, the volume offers a unique combination of practical know-how and scholarly expertise.
