Neurofeedback training in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder


Identified with symptoms of deficits in attention, hyperactivity and impulsivity, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common psychiatric disorders of childhood and adolescence. With its neurobiological underpinnings, most effective treatment of the disorder has so far been reported as drug therapies. In addition to pharmacological interventions, other non- pharma-co-logical treatment strategies have also been suggested, in order to efficiently improve symptoms and overall functioning. Among nonpharmacological ADHD treatment techniques, neurofeedback has long been phrased as a treatment strategy for the condition since early 1970s. Preliminary studies showed that neurofeedback was effective in treatment of ADHD. However, well-designed studies and meta-analyses show that the efficacy of neurofeedback is not clear.
