EEG Amplitude Neurofeedback: A Review Of The Research

EEG Amplitude Neurofeedback: A Review Of The Research

In 2019 the Asia Pacific Journal of Neurotherapy published a research paper we created that audited neurofeedback training research inside of a massive pool of data. 

The review of neurofeedback practice (as well as other forms of neuromodulation) compared different modalities, exploring the efficacy of neurotherapy for a range of symptoms.  

Massive Neurofeedback Data

Our paper compares 50 years worth of neurofeedback studies comparing technique, design, modality and treatment success, across 9500 individual research subjects inside of 314 seperate studies.  

The Findings 

Our findings were that EEG Amplitude Neurofeedback had overwhelmingly positive outcomes for clients with a wide variety of symptom presentations including ADHD, epilepsy, addiction, anxiety, autistic spectrum, depression, learning difficulties, trauma and brain injury.

The follow paragraph is from the Abstract

Studies published on neuromodulation for the past 50 years were analysed for neuromodulation technique, research design, condition or disorder investigated and outcome. 314 relevant studies were found, involving over 9,500 research subjects. EEG amplitude neurofeedback contributed over 70% of all studies. 62 randomised controlled design studies were found (and two utilising an ABA crossover design), and of those, over 75% involved amplitude neurofeedback. Outcomes for amplitude neurofeedback were overwhelmingly positive, as they also were for other techniques with a reasonable research base.
