Neurofeedback for ADHD

Neurofeedback for ADHD

This study analysed Theta and Beta rhythms and Theta/Beta ratios to determine whether training was effective. Training focused on rewarding reductions in Theta activation and increases in Beta activation. Results found a significant change in cortical activation in 50% of participants by their 20th neurofeedback training session. Only one participant showed significant change by session 9 or 10, indicating that neurofeedback therapy would be unlikely to meet the requirements of the Australia government’s Better Access program, which limits government funding to ten sessions.

There were numerous challenges when working with data from a clinical setting and these challenges will be discussed along with recommendations for future researchers in this field.
