Our collection resides in a loft above "the back warehouse".

Welcome to the museum! Situated on the top loft of our "back warehouse", the museum is being filled with all sorts of brain and biofeedback machines. We have received contributions from many individuals including Nancy Larsen, David Mahalic, Tom and Linda Brownback, Paul Swingle, Joan Ordmandy, Richard Sherman, and the AAPB. We have equipment designed and/or used by pioneers including Joe Kamiya, Charles Stroebel, Les Fehmi, Paul Swingle, Adam Crane, and Len Ochs. Some of our equipment has been used at Wright-Patterson Airforce Base, The University of Illinois, Memphis State University, Harvard Medical School, and Yale Medical School.

About Us

Einstein
This photograph was presented by Albert Einstein to Mr. Leon Harmon, who became the Ph.D. thesis advisor to museum founder Tom Collura. It was presented to Mr. Harmon, who had just installed a new "high fidelity record player" in Dr. Einstein's home in the late 1940's. This is the only known image of Einstein with his hands in this position.

We are a nonprofit museum and hall of fame dedicated to recognizing the pioneers in the study of the brain and biofeedback.

We accept donations of equipment, books, journals, or other materials related to the history of the study of the brain and biofeedback. All donations will be cataloged, and the donor will be acknowledged in displays and postings.

The museum is dedicated to one of the most astonishing brains that ever existed, belonging to the gentleman to the right.

The museum is supported by grants from:

Hall Of Fame

The Hall of Fame inducts notable individuals who have made contributions to the study of the brain and biofeedback. In order to be inducted, an individual’s contributions must have been recognized for more than one decade, and provided that individual with singular distinction in the field.

Adam Crane

Pioneered EEG biofeedback instrumentation, particularly for synchrony training, and co-author of the book "Mind Fitness Training"

Tom Budzynski

Inventor of the "twilight trainer" and pioneer in emg and alpha and theta training. Tom and Helen co-edited the book "QEEG and Neurofeedback", with Evans and Abarbanal

Joe Kamiya

First to discover subjective correlates to alpha waves, and the ability of subjects to discern when they were in the alpha state. Went on to study voluntary control and operant learning of the alpha wave in humans.

Barry Sterman

Discovered EEG operant conditioning in cats, went on to study pilots, and discern the "concentration/relaxation" cycle, and the use of EEG biofeedback for epilepsy. The "Sterman" protocol continues to be a mainstay in the field.

Paul Swingle

Originator of the "brain driver" concept and the use of subliminal stimuli. Worked and taught at Harvard Medical School, and developed many procedures and devices for biofeedback assessment and treatment

Joel Lubar

Did pioneering work in EEG biofeedback for ADD/ADHD, and QEEG. With his wife Judith, he has developed assessment and treatment methods that have become essential foundations to the field.

Neils Birbaumer

Pioneered DC and Slow Cortical potential work, and in the area of brain-controlled interfaces. His studies anticipated the rest of the world by decades.

Hans Berger

German psychiatrist who discovered human EEG in 1929, and immediately identified the alpha and beta waves. His recordings were made with an Eindhoven "string galvanometer" produced by Siemens Corp.

Les Fehmi

Originator of the Open Focus concept, and developer of many generations of alpha synchrony trainers and photic reinforcement devices. Pioneered "couples" biofeedback, and therapeutic methods, with his wife Susan.
