OBJECTIVE Developmental trauma or chronic early childhood exposure to abuse and neglect by caregivers has been shown to have a long-lasting pervasive impact on mental and neural development, including problems with attention, impulse control, self-regulation, and executive functioning. Its long-term effects are arguably the costliest public health challenge in the United States. Children with developmental trauma rarely have a satisfactory response to currently available evidence-based… 
Case Report: Infra-Low-Frequency Neurofeedback for PTSD: A Therapist's Perspective
The neurofeedback treatment after a trauma-focused psychotherapy session helps to calm the trauma-related reactions and to process the memories.
Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Early Life Stress: a “Nudge” for the Nervous System?
Early life stress has been shown to have profound effects on the developmental trajectories of individuals. Findings have implicated most major areas of the brain as being affected, and existing
The Role of Implicit Memory in the Development and Recovery from Trauma-Related Disorders
It is posited that adequate recovery from extensive trauma experiences requires more than conscious elaboration of traumatic autobiographical memories and that the application of implicit nonconscious memory modification strategies will facilitate more optimal recovery.
Differential mechanisms of posterior cingulate cortex downregulation and symptom decreases in posttraumatic stress disorder and healthy individuals using real‐time fMRI neurofeedback
The posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) is the main hub of the posterior DMN, where the therapeutic regulation of this region with real‐time fMRI neurofeedback (NFB) has yet to be explored.
Research on the Emotions Based on Brain-Computer Technology: A Bibliometric Analysis and Research Agenda
It is pointed out that individual differences, privacy risk, the extended study of BCI application scenarios and others deserve further research.
Neurological Mechanisms of Diagnosis and Therapy in School Children with ADHD in Poland
The paper compares the concordance of a medical diagnosis confirming ADHD syndrome with the occurrence of abnormal electrical brain function recording and abnormalities therein as well as the effectiveness of the neurofeedback therapy to confirm that the reported problems faced by pupils and affecting their emotional functioning are reflected in their EEG records.


QEEG-Guided Neurofeedback for Children with Histories of Abuse and Neglect: Neurodevelopmental Rationale and Pilot Study
ABSTRACT Background. Poor self-regulation of arousal is central to the behavioral difficulties experienced by children with traumatic caretaker attachment histories. EEG biofeedback teaches children
A Pilot Study of Neurofeedback for Chronic PTSD
Abstract EEG Biofeedback (also known as neurofeedback) has been in use as a clinical intervention for well over 30 years; however, it has made very little impact on clinical care. One reason for this
A Randomized Controlled Study of Neurofeedback for Chronic PTSD
Compared with the control group NF produced significant PTSD symptom improvement in individuals with chronic PTSD, as well as in affect regulation capacities.
Sustained effects of neurofeedback in ADHD: a systematic review and meta-analysis
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.
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Investigation of the Effects of Neurofeedback Training on the Neural Bases of Selective Attention and Response Inhibition in Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
FMRI experiments suggest that NFT has the capacity to functionally normalize the brain systems mediating selective attention and response inhibition in AD/HD children.
