Book Description :

Quantitative EEG (qEEG) has become an increasingly common method of assessment in the field of neurofeedback. The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) has issued a position paper advocating its widespread use within the field, and many entering the field gravitate toward its use because of its empirical value in the assessment and determination of protocols for intervention with neurofeedback. At the same time, the neuroimaging field has also increasingly taken an interest in qEEG and begun to employ it extensively in research alongside fMRI, because of its high temporal resolution and increasing spatial resolution resulting from recent enhancements such as low-resolution brain electromagnetic tomography (LORETA) imaging. This growing common use has provided a valuable new information source for the field of neurofeedback that can be applied at the research and clinical levels for an enriched analysis of client disorders. This chapter, on the one hand, is intended as an example of how those already engaged in qEEG might synthesize the emerging neuroimaging research with their own clinical experience, and is also an effort to present this topic in a generally understandable fashion. Those clinicians who are new to the field of neurofeedback or who are considering the use of qEEG at the clinical level are often intimidated by the complexity of the technology, and by the lack of basic guides to its implementation. Psychologists, counselors and medical professionals do not typically receive the technical training to prepare them for this new and powerful technology, which may come to play an important role in their respective professions. This chapter therefore is also meant to examine qEEG in a basic and comprehensive schema to help inform and initially guide such an audience in further exploration of the topic.

Book Description :

Neuromodulation – or more specifically neurofeedback – as a treatment for ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) has long been practiced, and recent advances in research and equipment have provided information on how these neuromodulation techniques might work. Recent studies show promising effects of neuromodulation as a treatment for ADHD, but there are many differences between the methods used. Because EEG neurofeedback yields the best-documented results, commonly used EEG protocols, such as theta/beta training, SMR and slow cortical potential training, are described and reviewed. qEEG and phenotype-based protocols are compared to more general assumptions about neuromodulation and ADHD. The protocols are also compared and combined into a neuropsychological model of attention, leading to an understanding of how different protocols can lead to similar results in the treatment of ADHD. Furthermore, neuropsychology is discussed with regard to how it may help with understanding how behavior is changed by neuromodulation. Finally, behavior and learning are discussed in relation to neuromodulation.

Book Description :

Past and possible future trends and major developments in neurotherapy are reviewed and put into context. Neurotherapy has comprised several broad areas that can be divided into volitional and nonvolitional interventions. One common element of these approaches is the goal of altering (“modulating”) neuronal activity, in the pursuit of improved efficiency and effectiveness. A wide range of techniques has evolved that are generally used either sequentially or in combination. Integrated methods that incorporate multiple approaches are becoming increasingly important and clinically relevant. The future of neurotherapy will be influenced by a range of factors that will include scientific and clinical developments, economic realities and sociocultural influences. In addition, a unified approach with a cohesive theoretical underpinning has not yet been achieved. Progress in neurotherapy will require progress in all of these areas to secure its proper role in the fields of medicine, psychiatry, psychology and mental health. A singular purpose and a unified design approach can lead to improved levels of usability and efficacy.

Book Description :

Many studies have highlighted the fact that our modern diet of processed foods, containing additives, colorings and preservatives, is far removed from those of our evolutionary ancestors and is a major contributing factor to modern diseases. This chapter reviews literature that indicates that most Americans and Australians are not getting the recommended daily intake of key nutrients for optimum general and mental health. The role of omega-3 essential fatty acids, zinc, magnesium, B vitamins and other enzyme cofactors is reviewed in the context of the symptomatology of ADHD. Specific mechanisms are described to illustrate that these nutrients are necessary for serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine metabolism, and how deficits can promote ADHD. The message to practitioners is that whereas neurotherapy can help the brain to allocate resources appropriately and improve brain function, nutrient supplementation can help provide the optimum biological substrate that facilitates and enhances the changes that neurotherapy can bring about.

Book Description :

This chapter provides a brief introduction to neurofeedback as practiced by the author, followed by a rather detailed description of vision therapy, which he has found to be an excellent supplement, especially with many cases of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and traumatic brain injury. The chapter provides basic information about the problems created by impaired control of binocular eye movement, and the use of orthoptic vision therapy to correct functional visual problems such as poor convergence and divergence. Poor binocular control creates problems such as headaches, slowed and inaccurate reading and poor depth perception. Poor depth perception in turn leads to poor sports performance and a self-perception of being “clumsy.” Combining challenging and activating tasks, including active listening and vision therapy methods, with neurofeedback during a course of neurotherapy is also addressed, as is how and when to refer to a developmental/behavioral vision specialist (orthoptist).

Book Description :

Developmental disorders cover vast, often overlapping diagnostic territories. Originating in childhood, many of these disorders continue to produce symptoms and functional difficulties throughout the individual’s life. Some developmental disorders have strong genetic components; others are of unknown etiology. Two of the most important are disorders of attention and seizure disorders, which are covered in separate chapters. This chapter focuses on autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, dyslexia, disorders of bowel and bladder elimination control, and sleep. As research progresses, the necessity of full-cap simultaneous EEG acquisition under both resting and activation conditions, with detailed analysis of co-modulation and coherence is becoming clearer. There is no need for overadherence to rigid frequency band definitions. The role of underlying network dysfunctions, not just individual sites, continues to emerge.

Book Description :

In these times of escalating healthcare costs in the United States, EEG biofeedback – also called neurofeedback – looks like a very promising form of treatment because of its noninvasive properties and relative cost-effectiveness. Increased numbers of medical conditions are emerging in which neurofeedback shows improvement of their symptoms. However, in only a few neuropsychiatric disorders, which include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, has the effectiveness of neurofeedback been well documented by randomized studies. Therefore, more well-designed studies are needed to increase the rank of neurofeedback in evidence-based medicine. The author recommends the use of reports combining correlation of both subjective and objective findings documenting an improvement after neurofeedback. In addition, the use of more advanced technology is suggested, including quantitative EEG and functional MRI to document an objective improvement. Also, whenever possible, employing randomization with neurofeedback “sham” controls may be of benefit in order to diminish a placebo effect.

Book Description :

This review provides an updated overview of both basic and clinical research literature, neurophysiological rationale and current methods of practice pertaining to clinical neurofeedback. While considering general issues of physiology, epilepsy and learning principles, it focuses on the treatment of epilepsy with sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) training, arguably the best established clinical application of EEG operant conditioning. The basic research literature provides ample data to support a very detailed model of the neural generation of SMR, as well as the most likely candidate mechanism underlying its efficacy in clinical treatment. Further, although more controlled clinical trials would be desirable, a respectable literature supports the clinical utility of this alternative treatment for epilepsy. The skilled application of clinical neurofeedback with epilepsy requires a solid understanding of the disorder, as well as the neurophysiology underlying EEG oscillations and operant learning principles. The best clinical practice includes a systematic quantitative mapping of multi-electrode EEG measures against a normative database before and after treatment to assess outcomes, as well as documented measurement of progress towards EEG normalization during training.

Book Description :

This clinical manual argues for using neurotherapy to enhance mental health and medical practice across settings and specialties. The text takes readers through the tools and methods of neurotherapy: the ClinicalQ for intake assessment, a stimulated EEG modality called braindriving, and neurofeedback protocols to retrain brain function. Case studies demonstrate neurotherapy as an efficient component in treating brain-related and mind/body conditions and symptoms, from ADHD, sleep disturbances, and depression to fibromyalgia and seizures. Its methods allow clinicians to find deviations in brain function that fall through the diagnostic cracks and choose therapeutic interventions best suited to clients based on reliable data. Included in the coverage: Treating the condition instead of the diagnosis. Case examples illustrating how to conduct the ClinicalQ, interpret results, and convey them to clients. Sample protocols of braindriving and neurofeedback. Using therapeutic harmonics to advance neurotherapy. Age-appropriate neurotherapy for children and seniors. Brainwave diagrams, data tables, client forms, and other helpful tools and visuals. Adding Neurotherapy to Your Practice will interest psychologists, physicians, psychiatrists, chiropractors, and social workers. This stimulating presentation emphasizes the individuality of every client, and the abundant healing capacity of the brain.

Book Description :

The fields of neurobiology and neuropsychology are growing rapidly, and neuroscientists now understand that the human brain has the capability to adapt and develop new living neurons by engaging new tasks and challenges throughout our lives, essentially allowing the brain to rewire itself. In Neurotherapy and Neurofeedback, accomplished clinicians and scholars Lori Russell-Chapin and Ted Chapin illustrate the importance of these advances and introduce counselors to the growing body of research demonstrating that the brain can be taught to self-regulate and become more efficient through neurofeedback (NF), a type of biofeedback for the brain. Students and clinicians will come away from this book with a strong sense of how brain dysregulation occurs and what kinds of interventions clinicians can use when counseling and medication prove insufficient for treating behavioral and psychological symptoms.

Book Description :

What is neurofeedback? Neurofeedback is founded upon computer technology joined with auxiliary equipment that can measure the metabolic activity of the cerebral cortex. Neurofeedback training combines the principles of complementary medicine with the power of electronics. It is a comprehensive system that promotes growth change at the cellular level of the brain and empowers the client to use his or her mind as a tool for personal healing.Until now, there has not been a single comprehensive yet easy-to-understand guide for clinicians interested in adding neurotherapy to their practice. Getting Started with Neurofeedback is a step-by-step guide for professional health care providers who wish to begin with neurotherapy, as well as experienced clinicians who are looking for a concise treatment guide.This book answers essential questions such as: How does neurotherapy work?, What is the rationale for treatment? When is neurotherapy the treatment of choice? Why should I add it to my already existing healthcare practice? The author also answers questions important to establishing a successful practice such as: What kind of training should clinicians get? What kind of equipment should clinicians buy? How can clinicians add neurofeedback to their existing practice?The first part of the book introduces the reader to the world of neurofeedback, its history and scientific basis. Case studies help clinicians apply what they are learning to their existing practice. Demos takes the mystery out of the assessment process and charts and examples of topographical brain maps (in full color) serve as teaching aids. Later in the book, advanced techniques are explained and demonstrated by additional case studies. The reader is shown how to use biofeedback for the body to augment neurofeedback training as well as being taught to work with the body and acquire a basic knowledge of complementary medicine.The book concludes by offering clinicians practical suggestions on marketing their expanded practice, purchasing equipment, finding appropriate training and supervision, and keeping up with the ever-growing profession of neurofeedback. Research and theory unite to demonstrate the clinical underpinnings for this exciting new modality. Some images in the ebook are not displayed owing to permissions issues.
