Abstract While biofeedback is often said to increase self-control of physiological states by increasing awareness of their subjective correlates, relatively few studies have analyzed the relationship between control (standard biofeedback) and awareness (a discrimination paradigm). We hypothesized that the two skills would generalize and facilitate...

Biofeedback is commonly believed to train increased awareness and voluntary control over physiological processes that would otherwise remain unconscious and involuntary (Frederick, in press; Olson, 1987; Plotkin, 1981). Brener (1974) argued that repeated pairing of external feedback with internal afferents related to the response lead to the awaren...

Attention and explicit processing are known recruit more widely distributed resources in the brain and produce more effective learning. Since EEG state discrimination trains attention and explicit processing of the subjective correlates of EEG states, we hypothesized that training to discriminate high from low 8–12 Hz EEG amplitude (“alpha”) states...

... Implicit neurofeedback is intriguing and controversial because it runs counter to the first neurofeedback study, which showed a link between awareness (e.g. discrimination) of being in a certain brain state and control of the neurofeedback-derived brain activity (Kamiya, 1969(Kamiya, , 2011) (replicated here: (Frederick, 2012;Frederick et al., 2016Frederick et al., , 2019). Implicit neurofeedback might be advantageous in certain situations because it can be questioned whether providing an explicit cognitive strategy is always advisable (deCharms et al., 2005;Oblak et al., 2017;Scharnowski et al., 2012;Scheinost et al., 2013;Sulzer et al., 2013a). ...
