Book Description :

Neurofeedback (NF) is gaining recognition as an evidence-based intervention grounded in learning theory, and 19-channel z-score neurofeedback (19ZNF) is a new NF model. Peer-reviewed literature is lacking regarding empirical-based evaluation of 19ZNF. The purpose of this quantitative research study was to evaluate the efficacy of 19ZNF, in a clinical setting, using archival data from a Southwest NF practice, with a retrospective one-group pretest-posttest design. Each of the outcome measures framed a group such that 19ZNF was evaluated, as it relates to the particular neuropsychological constructs of attention (n = 10), behavior (n = 14), executive function (n = 12), as well as electrocortical functioning (n = 21). The research questions asked if 19ZNF improves these constructs. One-tailed t tests performed, compared pre-post scores for included clinical assessment scales, and selected quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG) metrics. For all pre-post comparisons, the direction of change was in the predicted direction. Moreover, for all outcome measures, the group means were beyond the clinically significant threshold before 19ZNF, and no longer clinically significant after 19ZNF. All differences were statistically significant, with results ranging from p = .000 to p = .008; and effect sizes ranging from 1.29 to 3.42. Results suggest 19ZNF improved attention, behavior, executive function, and electrocortical function. This study provides beginning evidence of 19ZNF's efficacy, adds to what is known about 19ZNF, and offers an innovative approach for using QEEG metrics as outcome measures. These results may lead to a greater acceptance of 19ZNF, as well as foster needed additional scientific research.

Book Description :

Developmental dyslexia is a neurological disorder that results in poor language-related learning despite average intelligence: this includes behavioural symptoms such as poor reading, spelling, and decoding abilities. In addition to these behavioural symptoms, electroencephalography (EEG) research and new data analytic techniques make it possible to investigate alterations in neural networks that correlate with such symptoms. In this thesis, these alterations were assessed by examining their impact on the EEG field activity associated with neural function. -- In an initial study, the EEG signatures of a sample of children with dyslexia with marked phonological impairment (phonological dyslexia) were obtained from a relatively large cohort of children with dyslexia and were compared to individually matched control participants. Results indicated that, relative to healthy controls, dyslexia was found to be associated with reduced power of delta, theta, alpha1, alpha2, beta2 and gamma frequency bands in frontal and temporal regions. In contrast, the power in these frequency bands was enhanced in the central and parietal-occipital electrodes. The gamma activity was consistently reduced in participants with dyslexia across all brain regions. Finally, all behavioural measures of dyslexia (6 reading tests, 3 phonological and 2 spelling tests) showed a consistent negative correlation with age of participants with dyslexia. This indicated that participants with dyslexia were continuously falling behind the normative age-expected behaviour at a near-constant rate. Consequently, the observed behavioural deficiencies translated into psychophysiological correlates that replicated some previous findings. -- Various methods have been developed to improve the symptoms of dyslexia (e.g., phonological therapy, reading therapy). A promising neuroscience-based method is neurofeedback therapy. Neurofeedback has shown a positive effect in the treatment of symptoms of other disorders (e.g., ADHD, autism, epilepsy); however, research on neurofeedback in dyslexia is both scarce and inconsistent. Neurofeedback was shown to improve reading and phonological skills, but other studies did not observe any significant effects of neurofeedback in this disorder or found symptoms-unspecific effects (e.g., reduced aggression). Therefore, Study 2 was conducted to examine the effect of neurofeedback in participants with dyslexia. Following Study 1, participants with dyslexia from the baseline study were randomly split into therapy and control groups, and a treatment study was then conducted to assess the impact of LORETA z-score neurofeedback therapy on behavioural and neurological markers of dyslexia. Specifically, the therapy group received 20 sessions of neurofeedback therapy, and the waitlist control group of participants with dyslexia did not. The post-therapy assessment revealed that there were therapy-related improvements in phonological task performance and phonological spelling. Finally, EEG power increased across the frequency spectrum when measured over the frontal lobe, possibly reflecting involvement of reading-related frontal lobe structures. -- Notably, the behavioural gains from therapy were retained three months post-treatment. An additional assessment of behavioural task performance showed that participant's performance was as improved as immediately following the end of the therapy and had improved even further in reading, phonological and spelling tasks. Further, performance benefits were present even when corrected for chronological age in reading and phonological (but not spelling) tasks. These findings provided novel evidence that the use of neurofeedback is an effective treatment for phonological dyslexia. It was therefore concluded that the positive effects of neurofeedback in dyslexia are lasting. However, future studies should examine whether such improvements could last longer than three months.

Book Description :

A guide to neurofeedback for better physical and mental health as well as greater emotional balance, cognitive agility, and creativity • Provides easy-to-understand explanations of different neurofeedback methods--from the LENS technique to Z-score training • Explains the benefits of this therapy for anxiety, depression, autism, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, brain injuries, stroke, Alzheimer’s, and many other ailments • Explores how to combine neurofeedback with breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, and attention-control exercises such as Open Focus What is neurofeedback? How does it work? And how can it help me or my family? In this guide to neurofeedback, psychologist and neurofeedback clinician Stephen Larsen examines the countless benefits of neurofeedback for diagnosing and treating many of the most debilitating and now pervasive psychological and neurological ailments, including autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, stroke, brain injury, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Surveying the work of neurofeedback pioneers, Larsen explains the techniques and advantages of different neurofeedback methods--from the LENS technique and HEG to Z-score training and Slow Cortical Potentials. He reveals evidence of neuroplasticity--the brain’s ability to grow new neurons—and shows how neurofeedback can nourish the aging brain and help treat degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s and strokes. Examining the different types of brain waves, he shows how to recognize our own dominant brainwave range and thus learn to exercise control over our mental states. He explains how to combine neurofeedback with breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, and attention-control exercises such as Open Focus. Sharing successful and almost miraculous case studies of neurofeedback patients from a broad range of backgrounds, including veterans and neglected children, this book shows how we can nurture our intimate relationship with the brain, improving emotional, cognitive, and creative flexibility as well as mental health.

Book Description :

Franziska Eller investigated the effectiveness of individualized Neurofeedback training in addition to a comprehensive basic neurodevelopmental therapy for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The results clearly speak for the benefits of a supplemental Neurofeedback training, since QEEG recordings revealed positive changes in the children’s brain wave activity after only a few weeks of training. Furthermore behavioral aspects and imitation abilities were assessed using two autism questionnaires and an imitation test. Results showed that all children improved in several domains, with the treatment group partly achieving greater changes than the control group. Unlike the most prevalent therapy methods that are mainly behavior-based, Neurofeedback training aims at improving abnormal brain wave activity and thereby establishes an alternative, promising approach to treat Autism Spectrum Disorders.
