Since the first reports of neurofeedback treatment in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in 1976, many studies have investigated the effects of neurofeedback on different symptoms of ADHD such as inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. This technique is also used by many practitioners, but the question as to the evidence-based level of this treatment is still unclear. In this study selected research on neurofeedback treatment for ADHD was collected and a meta-analysis was… Expand
Neurofeedback in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – a controlled multicenter study of a non-pharmacological treatment approach
TLDR
The efficacy of SCP-feedback training for children with ADHD is evaluated in this randomized controlled study, and the choice of EMG-biofeedback as an active control condition is debated. Expand
Evaluation of neurofeedback in ADHD: The long and winding road
TLDR
It is concluded that future controlled clinical trials should focus on standard protocols such as theta/beta, SMR and slow cortical potentials neurofeedback, and be designed along the lines of learning theory. Expand
Efficacy of EEG neurofeedback in psychiatry: A comprehensive overview and meta-analysis
Background: This article provides a comprehensive overview of studies investigating the efficacy of EEG neurofeedback in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. Method: Only studies comparingExpand
Clinical and Experimental Factors Influencing the Efficacy of Neurofeedback in ADHD: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The extended meta-analysis confirmed the previously obtained results of effect sizes in favor of NFB efficacy and suggested that the probably blind assessment of teachers may not be considered a good proxy for blind assessments, therefore stressing the need for studies with placebo-controlled intervention as well as carefully reported neuromarker changes in relation to clinical response. Expand
Neurofeedback in ADHD: a single-blind randomized controlled trial
TLDR
The results indicate that NF effectively reduced inattention symptoms on parent rating scales and reaction time in neuropsychological tests, and imply that non-specific factors, such as behavioural contingencies, self-efficacy, structured learning environment and feed-forward processes, may also contribute to the positive behavioural effects induced by neurofeedback training. Expand
Sustained effects of neurofeedback in ADHD: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Compared to non-active control treatments, NF appears to have more durable treatment effects, for at least 6 months following treatment, and more studies are needed to properly powered comparison of follow-up effects between NF and active treatments and to further control for non-specific effects. Expand
Evidence-Based Information on the Clinical Use of Neurofeedback for ADHD
TLDR
NF is a valid option for the treatment for ADHD, but further evidence is required to guide its use, as currently there is no available data to guide clinicians on the predictors of response to NF and on optimal treatment protocol. Expand
Neurofeedback in ADHD: Further Pieces of the Puzzle
TLDR
Despite a number of open questions concerning core mechanisms, moderators and mediators, NF (theta/beta and SCP) training seems to be on its way to become a valuable and ethically acceptable module in the treatment of children with ADHD. Expand
An RCT into the effects of neurofeedback , methylphenidate and physical activity on ERPs in children with ADHD
Objective: EEG neurofeedback is considered a non-pharmacological alternative for medication in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Comparisons of the behavioral efficacy of neurofeedbackExpand
Neurofeedback and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity-Disorder (ADHD) in Children: Rating the Evidence and Proposed Guidelines
TLDR
Standard neurofeedback protocols in the treatment of ADHD can be concluded to be a well-established treatment with medium to large effect sizes and 32–47% remission rates and sustained effects as assessed after 6–12 months. Expand

Is neurofeedback an efficacious treatment for ADHD? A randomised controlled clinical trial.
BACKGROUND For children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a reduction of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity by neurofeedback (NF) has been reported in several studies. ButExpand
Neurofeedback Treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children: A Comparison with Methylphenidate
TLDR
It is suggested that neurofeedback was efficient in improving some of the behavioral concomitants of ADHD in children whose parents favored a nonpharmacological treatment. Expand
Electroencephalographic Biofeedback in the Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
This review paper critically examines the empirical evidence, applying the efficacy guidelines jointly established by the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) and the International Society for Neuronal Regulation (ISNR), and determined EEG biofeedback to be “probably efficacious” for the treatment of ADHD. Expand
1Controlled evaluation of a neurofeedback training of slow cortical potentials in children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
TLDR
There is a specific training effect of neurofeedback of slow cortical potentials due to enhanced cortical control in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, however, non-specific factors, such as parental support, may also contribute to the positive behavioural effects induced by the Neurofeedback training. Expand
Neurofeedback for Children with ADHD: A Comparison of SCP and Theta/Beta Protocols
TLDR
Both groups were able to intentionally regulate cortical activity and improved in attention and IQ and clinical effects for both groups remained stable six months after treatment. Expand
The Effects of Stimulant Therapy, EEG Biofeedback, and Parenting Style on the Primary Symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Behavioral measures indicated that parenting style exerted a significant moderating effect on the expression of behavioral symptoms at home but not at school, and significant reduction in cortical slowing only in patients who had received EEG biofeedback. Expand
Clinical Utility of EEG in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
The utility of EEG in making an ADHD diagnosis and predicting stimulant response will be examined and the results of the most recent studies on EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) as a treatment for ADHD are reviewed. Expand

TLDR
Results suggest that in AD/HD children, NFT has the capacity to normalize the functioning of the anterior cingulate cortex, the key neural substrate of selective attention. Expand
