I have taught doctors of almost all disciplines how to do neurofeedback. I have used neurofeedback for almost a decade with great success. Although I know neurofeedback works very well for many disorders, it is good having research that supports its use. Many people appreciated part one of this blog, so I thought I would write part 2. More research supporting the use of neurofeedback for ADHD:
1. The Bluschke Research Group found impulsive behavior was reduced after neurofeedback treatment
2. The Bakhtadze Research Group reported neurofeedback can be considered an alternative treatment option for ADHD children
3. The Gonzalez-Castro Research Group compared neurofeedback and stimulant drugs for kids with ADHD. They reported the neurofeedback group “improved to a greater extent in executive control that the pharmacological support group.”
4. The Albrecht Research Group reported “Neurofeedback may be used to directly improve underlying neuronal deficits, and/or to establish more general self-regulatory skills that may be used to compensate behavioral difficulties.”
5. The Farkas Research Group found neurofeedback was useful in treating people with both ADHD and Tourette syndrome.
6. The Micouland-Franchi Research Group found “The meta-analysis of neurofeedback in children with ADHD highlights improvement in the inattention dimension of ADHD symptoms.”
7. The Gevensleben Research Group found that neurofeedback is a “clinically efficacious module in the treatment of children with ADHD.” The also reported behavioral improvements induced by neurofeedback training in children with ADHD were maintained at a 6 month follow up.
8. The Friel Research Group reported “In large scale clinical trials, the efficacy of EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) for ADHD, is comparable to that of stimulant medication.”
9. The Coghill Research Group found neurofeedback training in ADHD improves symptoms more than attention skills training.
10. The Beauregard and Levesque Research Group reported NF training “has the capacity to functionally normalize the brain systems mediating selective attention and response inhibition in ADHD children.”
