Neurofeedback, the practice of training brain activity, can be regarded as an evidence-based treatment for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to a recent study.
The study, conducted by a group of European scientists from Germany and the Netherlands, shows that neurofeedback treatment has considerable and clinically vital effects on impulsivity and inattention, and moderate effects on hyperactivity.
The researchers published their findings on the scientific journal “EEG and Clinical Neuroscience” after analyzing 15 studies on the subject and 1194 ADHD patients, according to a report by PR Newswire.
Neurofeedback treatment provides real-time feedback from the brain in order to change brain activity.
