The Effects of Neurofeedback Training on Memory Performance in Elderly Subjects
Neurofeedback or electroencephalographic operant conditioning (EEG-OC) is an EEG biofeedback technique used to train individuals to control or modify their cortical activity through learned
Effects of SMR and Theta/Beta Neurofeedback on Reaction Times, Spatial Abilities, and Creativity
TLDR
This work investigated whether healthy individuals are able to learn, within 30 NFT sessions, how to modulate either the SMR or the TBR, and whether such modulation can lead to an enh...
The efficacy of EEG neurofeedback aimed at enhancing sensory-motor rhythm theta ratio in healthy subjects
TLDR
These results suggest that individuals are able to inhibit theta activity easily while they fail to increase SMR in the first sessions, and point to the importance of providing EEG data in addition to behavioral modification, during NF training, to avoid possible misinterpretation of results.
Optimizing Performance in Psychology Students Neurofeedback as a Performance Enhancing Tool
Neurofeedback has been shown to be successful in treating epilepsy and ADHD and in enhancing performance in musicians and dancers. The objective of the current study was to examine the effect of a
Neurofeedback of Theta and Beta Frequencies: Effects on Selective Attention and Response Inhibition
TLDR
The present research was not conclusive regarding the NF conditions that might have contributed to improvements in target processing efficiency and cancellation of a previously prepared response in previous studies.
The effects of neurofeedback training on the spectral topography of the electroencephalogram
Effects of neurofeedback on hemispheric attention networks
Neurofeedback training improves attention and working memory performance
Effects of assisted training with neurofeedback on EEG measures, executive function and mood in a sample from normal population
Training in neurofeedback (NF) is to teach individuals to modify, adjust and enhance their brain activity pattern. The aim of our research was to evaluate the effect of training on cognitive
Working memory training using EEG neurofeedback in normal young adults.
TLDR
Prelinarily evidence that working memory performance can be improved through learned regulation of the EEG power ratio using EEG NF is provided.

EEG Signature and Phenomenology of Alpha/theta Neurofeedback Training Versus Mock Feedback
TLDR
The data demonstrate that irrespective of considerations of clinical relevance, accurate a/t neurofeedback effectively facilitates production of higher within-session t/a ratios than do noncontingent feedback relaxation.
A controlled study of the effects of EEG biofeedback on cognition and behavior of children with attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities
Eighteen children with ADD/ADHD, some of whom were also LD, ranging in ages from 5 through 15 were randomly assigned to one of two conditions. The experimental condition consisted of 40 45-minute
Evaluation of the effectiveness of EEG neurofeedback training for ADHD in a clinical setting as measured by changes in T.O.V.A. scores, behavioral ratings, and WISC-R performance
TLDR
The findings corroborate and extend previous research, indicating that neurofeedback training can be an appropriate and efficacious treatment for children with ADHD.
Learned self-regulation of EEG frequency components affects attention and event-related brain potentials in humans
TLDR
Both 12–15 Hz and 15–18 Hz enhancement were associated with significant increases in P300 event-related brain potential amplitudes in an auditory oddball task, interpreted as stemming from band-specific effects on perceptual and motor aspects of attention measures.
EEG and behavioral changes in a hyperkinetic child concurrent with training of the sensorimotor rhythm (SMR)
TLDR
A first attempt to explore the SMR biofeedback technique's applicability to the problem of hyperkinesis independent of the epilepsy issue and the subject population has recently been increased to establish the validity and generality of the findings.
Operant conditioning of EEG rhythms and ritalin in the treatment of hyperkinesis
TLDR
Although the procedure clearly reduced hyperkinetic behavior, a salient, specific therapeutic factor could not be identified due to the dual EEG contingency imposed combined with associated changes in EMG, which suggested the prognostic and diagnostic value of the SMR in the disorder when overactivity rather than distractibility is the predominant behavioral deficit.
High-resolution EEG mapping of cortical activation related to working memory: effects of task difficulty, type of processing, and practice.
TLDR
The results serve to dissociate the effects of task difficulty and practice, to differentiate the involvement of posterior cortex in spatial versus verbal tasks, to localize frontal midline theta to the anteromedial cortex, and to demonstrate the feasibility of using anatomical MRIs to remove the blurring effect of the skull and scalp from the ongoing EEG.
Neurofeedback Treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children: A Comparison with Methylphenidate
TLDR
It is suggested that neurofeedback was efficient in improving some of the behavioral concomitants of ADHD in children whose parents favored a nonpharmacological treatment.
Biofeedback Training of the Sensorimotor Electroencephalogram Rhythm in Man: Effects on Epilepsy
TLDR
Training in four epileptic patients, who previously were not controlled by chemotherapy, was accompanied by a significant reduction of EEG and clinical epileptic manifestations, as indicated by sequential power spectral analysis, clinical EEG records, and seizure logs.
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.
