By Deborah Kotz • February 17, 2014

Endogenous Neuromodulation in the Larger Perspective of Neurofeedback
By Siegfried Othmer • July 28th, 2023
The Deep Roots of Endogenous Neuromodulation
The method of Endogenous Neuromodulation has come to dominate our work in neurofeedback. It is characterized by the absence of any discrete reinforcers, the distinguishing feature of the operant conditioning model. We still rely on a complementary inhibit scheme, but the discrete markers here are mere cues to the brain as to its state of dysregulation. They do not offer a prescription for change.

We're also thawing out after three long years of a pandemic that put some of our favorite things, like this "regular newsletter," on ice for a while. But, we're still here in our big office and classroom in Los Angeles, the clinic is open again, there are new staff members to meet, some returning previous staff, a return to in-person learning in our classroom with breakfasts and coffee, a new director of education, a new lower frequency in the software, heartwarming accomplishments in the non-profit to tell you about, new publications, new videos to watch, and more.
