UNLABELLED This study examined whether an EEG biofeedback protocol could improve outcome measures for a mixed substance abusing inpatient population. [...] Key Method EEG biofeedback included training in Beta and SMR to address attentional variables, followed by an alpha-theta protocol. Subjects received a total of 40 to 50 biofeedback sessions. The control group received additional time in treatment equivalent to experimental procedure time.Expand
Short-term Beneficial Effects of 12 Sessions of Neurofeedback on Avoidant Personality Accentuation in the Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder
TLDR
It is suggested that 12 sessions of this neurofeedback intervention might be effective in reducing avoidant and stress-related personality traits in patients with alcohol use disorder. Expand
Neurofeedback Training as a New Method in Treatment of Crystal Methamphetamine Dependent Patients: A Preliminary Study
TLDR
It is suggested that NFB can be used to improve the effectiveness of treatment results in CMD patients, as shown by multivariate analysis of covariance. Expand
An assessment of an automated EEG biofeedback system for attention deficits in a substance use disorders residential treatment setting.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that automated neurofeedback can effectively improve attention in recovering illicit substance users in the context of a comprehensive residential substance abuse treatment facility. Expand
Effectiveness of Neurofeedback Training as a Treatment for Opioid-Dependent Patients
TLDR
It is suggested that NF can be used as a therapeutic method to ameliorate abnormalities related to opioid-dependence disorders and emphasize the importance of neuropsychological interventions in treatment of substance-Dependence disorders. Expand

The study supports the effectiveness of neurofeedback training as a therapeutic method in opiate dependence disorder, in supplement to pharmacotherapy. Expand
Quantitative Electroencephalography-Guided Versus Scott / Peniston Neurofeedback With Substance Use Disorder Outpatients : A Pilot Study
The present study evaluated quantitative electroencephalogram (QEEG)-guided and Scott/Peniston neurofeedback compared with a wait-list control in the treatment of substance abuse in an outpatientExpand
The Effectiveness of Visual Short-Time Neurofeedback on Brain Activity and Clinical Characteristics in Alcohol Use Disorders
TLDR
First evidence for the practicality and effectiveness of visual short-term NF as an additive intervention in the therapeutic community is provided and changes in several clinical scales were observed only in the EG contrary to the CG. Expand

A controlled study of the effects of EEG biofeedback on cognition and behavior of children with attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities
Eighteen children with ADD/ADHD, some of whom were also LD, ranging in ages from 5 through 15 were randomly assigned to one of two conditions. The experimental condition consisted of 40 45-minuteExpand
A Comparison of EEG Biofeedback and Psychostimulants in Treating Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders
The study compared treatment programs with EEG biofeedback or stimulants as their primary components. An EEG group (EEG) was matched with a stimulant group (MED) by age, IQ, gender and diagnosis. TheExpand
Alpha-theta brainwave training and beta-endorphin levels in alcoholics.
TLDR
13-month follow-up data indicate sustained prevention of relapse in alcoholics that completed alpha-theta brainwave training, a relaxation therapy, appears to counteract the increase in circulating beta-endorphin levels seen in the control group of alcoholics. Expand
Neuropsychological Assessment of Subjects with Uncontrolled Epilepsy: Effects of EEG Feedback Training
TLDR
Psychological functioning, as measured by the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), improved in both outcome groups but MMPI improvement, unlike cognitive improvement, was as likely to occur after control conditions, when seizure reduction had not yet occurred, as after EEG training. Expand
Alpha-theta brainwave neurofeedback training: an effective treatment for male and female alcoholics with depressive symptoms.
TLDR
Twenty-one-month follow-up data indicated sustained prevention of relapse in alcoholics who completed BWNT, and experimentally treated alcoholics with depressive syndrome showed sharp reductions in self-assessed depression (Beck's Depression Inventory). Expand
Regarding the Database for the Peniston Alpha-Theta EEG Biofeedback Protocol
TLDR
The basic literature for alpha-theta EEG biofeedback treatment for alcoholism and posttraumatic stress disorder is reviewed and a database for neurofeedback with specific procedural information is strengthened so that claims of efficacy can be tested and accepted or rejected on an objective basis. Expand
Neurofeedback Combined with Training in Metacognitive Strategies: Effectiveness in Students with ADD
TLDR
The positive outcomes of decreased ADD symptoms plus improved academic and intellectual functioning suggest that the use of neurofeedback plus training in metacognitive strategies is a useful combined intervention for students with ADD. Expand
Evaluation of the effectiveness of EEG neurofeedback training for ADHD in a clinical setting as measured by changes in T.O.V.A. scores, behavioral ratings, and WISC-R performance
TLDR
The findings corroborate and extend previous research, indicating that neurofeedback training can be an appropriate and efficacious treatment for children with ADHD. Expand
Outcomes for cocaine abusers after once-a-week psychosocial therapy.
TLDR
The results of the study indicate that outpatient therapy once a week is ineffective for cocaine use disorder, and either an intense level of outpatient contact or residential treatment followed by aftercare is probably needed, at least initially, while the patient is attempting to initiate and sustain abstinence. Expand
Learned self-regulation of EEG frequency components affects attention and event-related brain potentials in humans
TLDR
Both 12–15 Hz and 15–18 Hz enhancement were associated with significant increases in P300 event-related brain potential amplitudes in an auditory oddball task, interpreted as stemming from band-specific effects on perceptual and motor aspects of attention measures. Expand
