OBJECTIVE: To evaluate sustained improvements 6 months after a 40-session, in-school computer attention training intervention using neurofeedback or cognitive training (CT) administered to 7- to 11-year-olds with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). METHODS: One hundred four children were randomly assigned to receive neurofeedback, CT, or a control condition and were evaluated 6 months postintervention. A 3-point growth model assessed change over time across the conditions on the… Expand
A 6-month follow-up of an RCT on behavioral and neurocognitive effects of neurofeedback in children with ADHD
TLDR
Interestingly, teacher reports showed less inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity at follow-up for NFB than PA, and superior results previously found for parent reports and neurocognitive outcome measures obtained with MPH compared to NFB and PA post intervention became smaller or non-significant at follow up. Expand
1-year follow-up of neurofeedback treatment in adolescents with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Results do not support the use of theta/SMR neurofeedback as a treatment for adolescents with ADHD and comorbid disorders in clinical practice and overall, NFB+TAU was as effective as TAU. 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
Effects of Smart-Tablet-Based Neurofeedback Training on Cognitive Function in Children with Attention Problems
TLDR
It is suggested that the smart-tablet-based neurofeedback training program might improve cognitive function in children with attention problems. Expand
Effect of Neurocognitive Training for Children With ADHD at Improving Academic Engagement in Two Learning Settings
TLDR
Findings support using neurocognitive training on academic engagement for improving academic performance of children with ADHD. Expand
Learning curves of theta/beta neurofeedback in children with ADHD
TLDR
This study shows that children with ADHD can gain control over EEG states during neurofeedback, although a lack of behavioral correlates may indicate insufficient transfer to daily functioning, or to confounding reinforcement of electromyographic activity. Expand
An RCT into the effects of neurofeedback on neurocognitive functioning compared to stimulant medication and physical activity in children with ADHD
TLDR
Overall, stimulant medication showed superior effects over NFB to improve neurocognitive functioning and do not support theta/beta training applied as a stand-alone treatment in children with ADHD. Expand
Neurofeedback in ADHD: A qualitative study of strategy use in slow cortical potential training
TLDR
A heterogeneous array of cognitive and other strategies is used at varying levels of training compliance by participants with ADHD during SCP that could be condensed to three prototypical profiles, and future research should take compliance and strategy/training profiles into account when evaluating NF. Expand
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
A comparative randomized controlled pragmatic trial of neurofeedback and working memory training for children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: protocol
Today, the treatment for children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is predominantly pharmacological. However, not all individuals respond to medication or some mayExpand

TLDR
This study shows that WM can be improved by training in children with ADHD, and this training also improved response inhibition and reasoning and resulted in a reduction of the parent-rated inattentive symptoms of ADHD. Expand

TLDR
The authors' carefully crafted medication management was superior to behavioral treatment and to routine community care that included medication for ADHD symptoms, and may have provided modest advantages for non-ADHD symptom and positive functioning outcomes. Expand

TLDR
This pilot study is the first study demonstrating that it is possible to select neurofeedback protocols based on individual EEG biomarkers and suggests this results in improved treatment outcome specifically for ATT, however these results should be replicated in further controlled studies. Expand
