original paper SUMMARY Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious and growing problem, and long-term con- sequences become more widely acknowl- edged recently. A group of six patients with traumatic brain injury have been accepted for neurofeedback training. All of them have been injured by ar accident. Mild motor impairment was apparent in all patients; however, cognitive difficulties were the main problem. Preliminary qEEG assessment showed generally predominance of slow brain waves in fronto…

Neurofeedback and traumatic brain injury: a literature review.

Neurofeedback is a promising treatment that warrants double-blind, placebo-controlled studies to determine its potential role in the treatment of traumatic brain injury, and clinicians can advise that some patients report improvement in a wide range of neuropsychiatric symptoms after undergoing neurofeedback, although the treatment remains experimental, with no standard methodology.

Neurofeedback – A Method Which Trains the Brain to Obtain Changes in Behaviour

Positive outcome is promising for more expansive use of this non-pharmacological, cost-benefit methodology in paediatric and general population for neurofeedback training in children and adolescents.

The Road Less Traveled: Integrating Neurotherapy with Holistic Neuropsychological Rehabilitation After Severe Head Injury

This case study highlights that integrating EEG-NFT along with holistic neuropsychological rehabilitation helps to improve cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disturbances after TBI.

Using the Brain-Rate as a Preliminary Indicator of General Mental Activation in Cognitive Neurorehabilitation of TBI Patients

A brain rate is proposed as a preliminary indicator of a general mental arousal level and as a general multiband neurofeedback parameter, considering the neuro-physical mechanisms in a cognitive neurorehabilitation of TBI patients.

Retrospective Analysis of a Comprehensive Concussion Recovery Program

Patients with repeated Retrospective Analysis of a Comprehensive Concussion Recovery Program Journal of Rehabilitation 2020, Volume 86, No. 1, 20-31 suffer from post-traumatic amnesia after injury.

A comprehensive “Concussion Recovery Program” with emphasis on brain coaching and EEG-based neurofeedback therapy: A retrospective analysis

Patients with PCS who completed the CRP experienced significant improvements in their symptoms and these results are promising and now a larger prospective study is warranted.

Electrodermal Activity and Stress Assessment

Physiological specifics of skin conductance/resistance and how it is measured in practice are discussed and effectiveness of this method in paediatric practice is shown.



EEG-NeuroBioFeedback Treatment of Patients with Brain Injury: Part 2: Changes in EEG Parameters versus Rehabilitation

A common EEG pattern was observed for a group of patients exhibiting vertigo with two subgroups in which vertigo was observed, and the impact of gender and age class influence was assessed against treatment results.

EEG Operant Conditioning (Biofeedback) and Traumatic Brain Injury

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.

Neurofeedback treatment of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Electro biofeedback operant conditioning is a good choice for treatment of ADHD children because it is non-invasive and has high cost-benefit.

Efficacy of Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation: Interventions of QEEG-guided Biofeedback, Computers, Strategies, and Medications

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.

EEG-NeuroBioFeedback Treatment of Patients with Brain Injury Part 3: Cardiac Parameters and Finger Temperature Changes Associated with Rehabilitation

Electroencephalographic NBF in patients with brain injury results in beneficial physiological regulation in addition to initially targeted improvements in brain functions, reflecting an improvement of blood circulation.

Neurophysical substrates of arousal and attention

A transition probability concept of arousal based on field–dipole quantum interactions and information entropy is elaborated and some clinical implications, including the brain-rate parameter as an indicator of arousal and attention levels, are provided.

Electrodermal biofeedback in treating psychogenic nonepileptic seizures.

It is infered that biofeedback for PNE in pediatric patients is highly cost-effective, discriminative for the actual level of stress and gives good therapeutic results through enhancing self awareness and relaxation, when used in combination with standard psychometric and psychotherapeutic methods.
