The onset of cognitive rehabilitation brought with it a hope for an effective treatment for the traumatic brain injured subject. This paper reviews the empirical reports of changes in cognitive functioning after treatment and compares the relative effectiveness of several treatments including computer interventions, cognitive strategies, EEG biofeedback, and medications. The cognitive functions that are reviewed include auditory memory, attention and problem solving. The significance of the… 
Neurofeedback as a Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Following acute TBI rehabilitation there have been a limited number of strategies used in the treatment of cognitive disorders, but it is still common for patients with TBI to be told that after a year and a half they have obtained about all of the improvement that they can expect, and that they must simply adjust to the current state of affairs.
Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation: QEEG Biofeedback Treatment Protocols
TLDR
This paper reviews and assesses QEEG patterns collected under both resting conditions as well as cognitive tasks and provides a theoretical and empirical base forQEEG interventions with TBI.
The Role of the Quantitative EEG in the Diagnosis and Rehabilitation of the Traumatic Brain Injured Patients
TLDR
The research documents two cognitive activation approaches to QEEG analysis which have obtained 100 % accuracy in their diagnostic decision and supports the use of the activation database-guided QEEGs in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of the TBI patient.

TLDR
Preliminary data suggests that TBI survivors may benefit from improved motivation for treatment and some reduction of symptoms related to attention, mood, and mindfulness, with the addition of neurofeedback to treatment.
Memory Impairments and Rehabilitation: Evidence-Based Effects of Approaches and Training Programs
TLDR
A large body of evidence seems to support, with different efficacy levels according to etiology and type of brain injury, several training programs in stable individuals but not in persons with degenerative diseases.
Neuropsychological Rehabilitation After Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
The most frequent cognitive impairments following TBI are described and also the strategies used to handle patients post-TBI are discussed.
Neurofeedback training with a motor imagery-based BCI: neurocognitive improvements and EEG changes in the elderly
TLDR
Evidence is established in the association between NFT performed by a motor imagery-based BCI and enhanced cognitive performance and it could be a novel approach to help elderly people.
Qeeg , Brain Rate, Executive Functions and Neurofeedback Training in Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury -
TLDR
Preliminary qEEG assessment showed generally predominance of slow brain waves in fronto-parietal regions, indicating the type of applied protocols, and is the first application of neurofeedback for treatment TBI in this region.
The Rehabilitation of a Traumatic Brain Injury With the Coordinated Allocation of Resource Model
Abstract A case analysis of a person with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is presented in detail. The analysis employs the coordination allocation of resource (CAR) model of brain functioning and the

The Effectiveness of EEG Biofeedback and Cognitive Rehabilitation as Treatments for Moderate to Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Electroencephalography biofeedback appeared to be more effective than cognitive rehabilitation in improving information processing impairments, namely, complex attentional control, response inhibition, and speed of language and comprehension, while cognitive rehabilitation was more effective in improving visual memory.
Cognitive improvement with treatment of depression following mild traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
It appears that successful depression treatment resulted in significant alleviation of cognitive impairments, which may not have been accounted for by natural recovery alone.
EEG Operant Conditioning (Biofeedback) and Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
The use of an age matched reference normative QEEG database andQEEG discriminant function are presented as a method to evaluate the nature or neurological basis of a patient's complaints as well as to individualize an efficient and optimal feedback protocol and to help evaluate the efficacy of the biofeedback therapy.
Electroencephalogram biofeedback for reading disability and traumatic brain injury.
Executive and compensatory memory retraining in traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The experimental group significantly improved memory scores beyond that of the control group, suggesting that memory remediation is effective for head-injury patients with memory deficits.

TLDR
The treatment model used in this study showed significant improvement in the sustained attention of individuals diagnosed with mTBI and ADHD after twenty treatment sessions.

TLDR
Case examples are presented that indicate the successful use of this intervention style in normal subjects and in subjects with brain injury; improvement cannot be fully explained by spontaneous recovery, given the time postinjury.
Pharmacological stimulant treatment of neurocognitive and functional deficits after traumatic and non-traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The authors' intent was to review the most commonly used neurostimulants, various intervention strategies, potential benefits and caveats and long-term outcomes with the use of these medications.
