Changes in brain electrical activity of boys with ADHD following neurotherapy

Changes in brain electrical activity of boys with ADHD following neurotherapy

This research is the first to demonstrate that Neurotherapy resulted in the dynamic neuromodulation of the dopamine-mediated frontal and norepinephrine-mediated parietal components of the attentional system, as proposed by Tucker and Williamson’s (1984) model of the attentional system. It provides further support to the recent controlled studies and meta-analysis that suggest that Neurotherapy is an effective and efficacious treatment for ADHD.

Changes in the brain electrical activity of seventeen boys with ADHD aged 7 – 15 years, was investigated before and after Neurotherapy Treatment to measure changes in: (a) Steady-state Visually Evoked Potentials (SSVEP), while performing the CPT-AX version of the continuous performance task; (b) behavioural measures of attention, derived from analysis of keypresses during the CPT-AX task; (c) parent and teacher reports of DSM-IV ADHD symptoms, as assessed by the Australian Twin Behaviour Rating Scale (ATBRS); and (d) performance on a Continuous Performance Task, the Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA).

Dietary Omega 3 Fatty Acid requirements following minor traumatic brain injury

Abnormal profiles of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the plasma phospholipids were observed in patients with closed head injuries, indicating that the metabolic response to injury encompasses changes

Approaching the back of the Head; Beta reset protocol

This presentation is an introduction of a new protocol, its implications and its use with different disorders. Beta reset protocol was used successfully to treat refractory PTSD and refractory migraines,

QEEG in TBI - The gap between expectation and outcome

Working memory systems in health and disease

An important task of the human central nervous system is to link sensory information to appropriate response. This is the defining characteristic of adaptive behaviour in humans. Such adaptability is

Clinical correlates of traumatic brain injury

Traumatic Brain injury can manifest clinically in a wide variety of physical and mental presentations. The neuropathology and neuroanatomy underlying a number of these clinical manifestations are presented

Who am I ? State, trait and brain wave training

After several months of neurofeedback, a young woman said, “I have never been more myself and never known less who I am.” Although her statement is exceptional, her experience is not. By its nature, neurofeedback affects the nature of those who train. In discussions of neurofeedback, we tend to focus on the alleviation of symptoms. This talk seeks to extend the discussion to the effects neurofeedback has not only on symptoms, but also over time, on personality and identity.

Functional qEEG reports: converging clinical applications into neurofedback protocols.

The quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG) is becoming a viable assessment tool for neurofeedback practitioners. The qEEG information is obtained with comparisons to norm-referenced databases which can be overwhelming to many practitioners. To simplify understanding of the data and improve clinical applicability, we have developed a unique approach to the interpretation of the qEEG.
