Dr. Michael Thompson passed away comfortably at home on March 1, 2021. Formerly he practiced medicine in addition to serving as Associate Professor and head of post-graduate education in Psychiatry, University of Western Ontario, psychiatric consultant to The Hospital for Sick Children’s neurology department, examiner for the Royal College of Physicians (Canada) and chairman of their examinations committee in psychiatry. With his wife, Lynda Thompson, PhD, they have written numerous professional publications and collaborated on The Neurofeedback Book: An Introduction to Basic Concepts in Applied Psychophysiology, which has become a basic text in the field of EEG Biofeedback. Michael’s accomplishments were many and varied, but the most admirable thing was his approach to life. This was most apparent in his devotion to his family and extended to his many lifelong friendships, his dedicated work as a health professional, and his passion for the outdoors.
ISNR shall dearly miss Dr. Thompson.
