The Chat featured Dr. Paul Lehrer, Professor Emeritus at Rutgers Medical School, Dr. David Shurtleff, Acting Director of the NCCIH, and Dr. Robert Coben, president of the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research.
Paul Lehrer shared information on the history of heart rate variability biofeedback. David Shurtleff commented on new NIH initiatives and funding opportunities as well as curriculum in pain education for medical students and doctors. Robert Coben commented on developments and applications of neurofeedback. Questions from the audience included why pain education approaches are lacking among medical doctors and what are the NCCIH funding opportunities for small businesses and rehabilitation medicine?
