In this research, the effectiveness of neurofeedback, along with virtual reality (VR), in reducing the level of inattention and impulsiveness was investigated. Twenty-eight male participants, aged 14-18, with social problems, took part in this study. They were separated into three groups: a control group, a VR group, and a non-VR group. The VR and non-VR groups underwent eight sessions of neurofeedback training over 2 weeks, while the control group just waited during the same period. The VR… 
The Effect of Virtual Reality Cognitive Training for Attention Enhancement
TLDR
It is found that immersive VR with cognitive training is effective for attention enhancement and can improve the attention span of children and adolescents with behavioral problems and help them learn to focus on some tasks.
Effects of a 3D Virtual Reality Neurofeedback Scenario on User Experience and Performance in Stroke Patients
TLDR
Results indicate that neurofeedback can be improved with the implementation of virtual reality scenarios, especially with regard to patients’ interest and motivation, however, stroke patients might be more skeptical concerning virtual reality technique and less self-confident in using it.
Does Feedback Design Matter? A Neurofeedback Study Comparing Immersive Virtual Reality and Traditional Training Screens in Elderly
TLDR
The results show that findings in healthy individuals are not always transferable to patient populations having an impact on serious game and feedback design, and suggest indications and contraindications of immersive VR feedback designs in BCI applications.
Near-Infrared Spectroscopy-Based Frontal Lobe Neurofeedback Integrated in Virtual Reality Modulates Brain and Behavior in Highly Impulsive Adults
TLDR
Results indicate a clear effect of the NF intervention in reducing impulsive behavior possibly via a strengthening of frontal lobe functioning and virtual reality additions to conventional NF may be one way to improve the ecological validity and symptom-relevance of the training situation.
The Effect of Neurofeedback Training on the Improvement of Continuous Attention
Introduction: Achieving the optimal performance of improved attention is among the most important goals of students. This study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of neurofeedback
Exploration of an EEG-Based Cognitively Adaptive Training System in Virtual Reality
TLDR
This paper explores a cognitively adaptive training system based on real-time measurement of task related alpha activity in the brain, and identifies significant differences in brain activity in response to increasing levels of task complexity, but response time did not alter as a function of task difficulty.

A controlled study of the effects of EEG biofeedback on cognition and behavior of children with attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities
TLDR
The experimental group significantly reduced inattentive behaviors as rated by parents and significant improvements in intellectual functioning and attentive behaviors might be explained as a result of the attentional enhancement affected by EEG biofeedback training.
Electroencephalographic biofeedback of SMR and beta for treatment of attention deficit disorders in a clinical setting
TLDR
The results indicate that EEG biofeedback training, if applied comprehensively, can be highly effective in helping to remediate children who are experiencing attention deficit disorders.
Basic Issues in the Application of Virtual Reality for the Assessment and Rehabilitation of Cognitive Impairments and Functional Disabilities
TLDR
Several basic issues need to be considered for the rational and measured development of VR applications for the study, assessment, and rehabilitation of cognitive impairments and functional disabilities.

TLDR
It is concluded that computer-driven assessment and treatment has many advantages and few disadvantages and a number of reasons are discussed which will preclude large-scale implementation of computer- driven assessment and therapy in the near future.
When is "impulsiveness" not impulsive? The case of hyperactive children's cognitive style.
TLDR
On two computerized versions of the Matching Familiar Figures Test (MFFT), pervasively hyperactive and matched control children had to identify a target from among five similar foils, and hyperactive children responded more quickly and made more mistakes than controls.
Assessing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder via quantitative electroencephalography: an initial validation study.
TLDR
Quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG) findings indicated significant maturational effects in cortical arousal in the prefrontal cortex as well as evidence of cortical slowing in both ADHD groups, regardless of age or sex.
