Efficacy of neurofeedback treatment in ADHD: The effects on inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity: A meta-analysis. (video link)

Dr Martijn Arns

Since the first reports of neurofeedback treatment in ADHD in 1976 many studies have been carried out investigating the effects of neurofeedback on different symptoms of ADHD such as inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. This technique is also used by many practitioners, but the question as to the evidence-based level of this treatment is still unclear.

 Recorded at the 2009 Annual Conference and Workshops Applied Neuroscience Society of Australasia (ANSA) : "Applied Neuroscience in Clinical Practice: From neuromodulation and neuroplasticity to biomarkers and nutrition", New Tweed Coast, August 2009.
