Research in the field of biofeedback is not always effective for the development of the field. In particular, neurofeedback has had spotty success, with many studies failing to meet rigorous methodological standards. Many researchers are lacking in the basic understanding of neuromodulation and its inherent learning model. And many clinicians, while knowledgeable in clinical applications, lack understanding of the rigors of good research. However, the International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) Foundation and the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) Foundation for Education and Research in Biofeedback are rich in expertise, yet that expertise is seldom tapped. The following interview with the president of the ISNR Research Foundation, David Trudeau, will spotlight the foundation's impact on the field of neurofeedback. A second interview with Paul Lehrer, Chair of AAPB's Foundation for Education and Research in Biofeedback (FERB) will appear in the summer 2014 issue of Biofeedback. It is hoped that this interview series will provide insight to both foundations and facilitate future collaboration.
