Short-Delay Neurofeedback Facilitates Training of the Parietal Alpha Rhythm

Figure 10: The magnitude of sustained changes in alpha rhythm parameters as a function of actual mean feedback latency for A) alpha magnitude, B)burst incidence rate, C) burst amplitude and D) burst duration. The text on each panel shows p-value for the hypothesis that the correlation coefficient is zero obtained with the parametric t-test and with a randomization test (in brackets). Only gain in alpha-spindles appear to have a significant linear dependence on feedback latency. Our great collaborators from Center [...]


ADHD and Neurofeedback training

The use of Neurofeedback for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a big social problem as a lot of children have it. The origin of ADHD is genetic mechanisms, organic brain damage, and psychosocial factors. Children and adolescents suffering from ADHD are characterized by restlessness, distraction, hyperactivity, impulsivity, poor school performance, fatigue. These symptoms may be the result of reduction of activation level of frontal cortex in combination with dysfunction of non-specific trunk structures and midbrain. An integrated approach to the diagnosis [...]
