What is ADHD ?
What is trained in neurofeedback for ADHD?
In general, individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) tend to have a decreased level of arousal and vigilance in the brain, which is reflected by an increase in slow brain waves like theta and alpha activity. To address this, neurofeedback therapy aims to train these slow brain waves down and faster brain activity up. Additionally, some individuals with ADHD may display other EEG patterns, such as beta spindles.
Are the results lasting?
The American scientist, Dr. Joel Lubar, conducted a study on the long-term effects of neurofeedback treatment on individuals with ADHD. After 10 years, he found that the improvements in behavior and EEG patterns observed during treatment were permanent. The researchers suspect that this is due to the normalization of specific circuits in the brain that regulate arousal levels. This theory is supported by various evidence, including the observed improvement in behavior and calming of thoughts as well as increased energy consumption, as shown in brain scans. It is well established in clinical practice that neurofeedback therapy can lead to permanent improvements in various conditions.
