The Effects of QEEG Guided Neurofeedback on Post-Concussion Syndrome

Dr Michael Linden

This presentation describes the case of a 17 year old female athlete who suffered two consecutive concussions, producing post-concussion headache symptoms. The athlete was assessed following the initial concussion with quantitative EEG (QEEG) and an integrated visual and auditory continuous performance test (IVA). 22 sessions of QEEG-guided neurofeedback produced normalisation of the QEEG and IVA profiles, and a cessation of headaches. A second concussion then produced further abnormalities in the QEEG and the IVA. A final course of 40 sessions of neurofeedback was again successful in normalising both cortical activity on the QEEG and scores on the IVA.

Dr Michael Linden

Dr Linden has been the Director of Attention Learning Centres and Attention Performance Centres at three Southern California locations in San Juan Capistrano, Irvine, and Encinitias since 1988. He has published papers relating to event related potentials amongst those with ADHD and implications for neurofeedback in the early 1990’s. He has specialised in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents and adults with ADD and Autistic Spectrum Disorder since 1982. His studies using QEEG based diagnosis and EEG Biofeedback with ADHD students as an alternative to medication yielded promising results and have been featured in the LA times, Orange County Register, and has been aired on specials on the Today Show, NBC Dateline, Channel 7 ABC News, KOCE PBS TV, Channel 4 NBC News, NBC special: “Autism: The Hidden Epidemic”, and CBS “The Doctors”.

Dr Linden was involved in the initial research studies of the Theta/Beta ratio with ADHD and published the first controlled study of the effects of Neurofeedback with ADHD. Dr Linden discovered 6 subtypes of Autism & 2 types of Asperger's based on QEEG Map research, which has greatly improved the success of Neurofeedback and other treatments for ASD (Journal of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, 2010; Autism Science Digest, 2011). He also was the author of a recent chapter entitled “QEEG Guided Neurofeedback for Autism” in the book Images in Autism (2013). Dr Linden is currently involved in a multi-site study of the effects of QEEG Guided Neurofeedback on connectivity measures such as QEEG and DTI for students with Autism. Dr Linden has also worked with professional, amateur and youth elite athletes and with athletes with ADD/Asperger's using biofeedback and QEEG guided neurofeedback to enhance performance, increase attention and manage anxiety.

Recently, Dr Linden has researched applications of QEEG to assess and monitor people suffering from concussion prior to treatment using neurofeedback. Dr Linden is an editor of the book ‘Biofeedback and Neurofeedback Applications in Sport Psychology.’ He has published articles in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback. In 2012, Dr Linden worked with the USA Olympic Women’s indoor volleyball team that won a silver medal. He has presented at numerous biofeedback and neurofeedback meetings. In 2012, he presented a workshop at the London Olympics and recently in 2013 presented at the Sport Neuropsychology Society meeting.
