Our friends over at ADDitude reported recently on a successful neurofeedback trial conducted with Tufts University:
The neurofeedback group showed significant and lasting improvements in attention, executive functioning, and hyperactivity/impulsivity, compared with peers in the cognitive training group.
The study also showed that children maintained the significant gains they made six months after receiving neurofeedback in school.
This last finding is particularly intriguing. Not only did students experience significant reductions in their ADHD symptoms, but these gains were maintained 6 months after the neurofeedback training ended.
These findings are just part of an onslaught of recent neurofeedback research that supports its use with ADHD children. We look forward to seeing more well-designed controlled studies like this one in the near future.
