Can Neurofeedback slow down normal ageing?

Neurofeedback ageing dementia cognitive enhancement

Numerous studies have shown how neurofeedback can benefit children and adults with ADHD by helping them to reduce symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity and impulse control. However, in more recent years, research has extended into investigating whether neurofeedback might assist ageing individuals and those experiencing various forms of cognitive decline. A number of studies have…

Neurofeedback increases motor coordination in children with ADHD

ADHD neurofeedback fine motor skills

A study published  in August 2018 by Urmia University examined whether neurofeedback could improve motor skills in children with Adhd.  Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often have been shown to have poor motor control, especially in bimanual coordination tasks. Such children characteristically have impaired fine motor ability, problems with force control, and poor motor coordination.…

Enhancing selective attention through neurofeedback

attention Neurofeedback performance enhancement

Neuroimaging studies have shown that children with Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have different structural and functional brain structures when compared to children without ADHD. Functional brain studies carried out in children with ADHD have implicated abnormal functioning of the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), specifically in tasks assessing selective attention. The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC)…

Skills not pills: Non-medication options for ADHD

Neurofeedback not pills

Although stimulant medication is a widely used treatment for ADHD, there are risks, problems and negative side-effects associated with its use. Alternatively, psychological interventions that use behavioural and cognitive techniques have been shown to be effective in the treatment of ADHD in children. In 2014, Hodgson and colleagues reviewed existing research on a range of…

Improvements in attention & brain structures following neurofeedback

Neurofeedback training

Neurofeedback (NF) training is a non-pharmacological treatment that follows the principle of positive reinforcement, allowing for individuals to overtly monitor brain activity. Research has provided evidence for improved sustained attention when individuals monitor and increase their Beta 1 waves. Recent studies have also examined the effect of NF on white matter pathways and grey matter…
