Neurofeedback is being utilized more commonly today in treating individuals who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Neurofeedback, which is based on theories that recognize the organic basis of ADHD, utilizes biofeedback to guide individuals to regulate their brain activity. Neurofeedback relies on research that has demonstrated that most individuals who have ADHD, as compared to matched peers, have excess slow wave activity and reduced fast wave activity. It provides… 
Self-reported efficacy of neurofeedback treatment in a clinical randomized controlled study of ADHD children and adolescents
The self-reported improvements in ADHD core symptoms and school performance shortly after treatment indicate NF treatment being promising in comparison with medication, suggesting NF as an alternative treatment for children and adolescents who do not respond to MPH, or who suffer side effects.
eurofeedback improves executive functioning in children ith autism spectrum disorders
Seven autistic children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) received a neurofeedback treatment that aimed to improve their level of executive control. Neurofeedback successfully reduced
The Effects of Neurofeedback Training on Concentration in Children with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder
This study investigated the effects of neurofeedback training on concentration in children with attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A single-subject ABA' experimental design was used to
EEG Findings in ADHD and the Application of EEG Biofeedback in Treatment of ADHD
Children with ADHD can have a great deal of difficulty focusing on lessons presented by their teachers and remembering how to do their homework, and may often be easily distracted whereby they pay attention to other things than what they should.
The neuronal mechanisms underlying improvement of impulsivity in ADHD by theta/beta neurofeedback
The study shows that specific neuronal mechanisms underlying impulsivity are modulated by theta/beta neurofeedback in ADHD, and validates assumed functional neuroanatomical target regions of an established neurofeedbacks protocol on a neurophysiological level.
Examining the Impact of Neurofeedback on Brain Waves and Attention-Deficit Rate in Boys with Attention- Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Introduction: Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the prevalent disorders amidst children over the world. Due to the side effects of medications used in the treatment of this
A Clinical Report of ADHD child treated with Neurofeedback theraphy

Effect of the Theta-Beta Neurofeedback Protocol as a Function of Subtype in Children Diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
The findings suggest that neurofeedback training using the theta/beta protocol was more effective in the predominantly inattentive subset of individuals with ADHD.
Background: Based on the association between beta (13-30 Hz) and attention and alertness and theta (4-8 Hz) and a hypnagogic state and less attention, the possibility of training attention deficit


Neurofeedback Treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children: A Comparison with Methylphenidate
It is suggested that neurofeedback was efficient in improving some of the behavioral concomitants of ADHD in children whose parents favored a nonpharmacological treatment.
The Effects of Stimulant Therapy, EEG Biofeedback, and Parenting Style on the Primary Symptoms of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
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.
Assessing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder via quantitative electroencephalography: an initial validation study.
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.
