Neurotherapy, sometimes called EEG biofeedback and/or neurobiofeedback involves techniques designed to manipulate brain waves through non-invasive means and are used as treatment for a variety of psychological and medical disorders. The disorders covered include ADHD, mood regulation, addiction, pain, sleep disorders, and traumatic brain injury. This book introduces specific techniques, related equipment and necessary training for the clinical practitioner. Sections focus on treatment for specific disorders and which individual techniques can be used to treat the same disorder and examples of application and the evidence base for use are described. An introduction for clinical practitioners and psychologists investigating neurotherapy techniques and application Includes coverage of common disorders such as ADHD, mood regulation, addiction, pain, sleep disorders, and traumatic brain injury Includes evidence base for use Includes training methods for new users

Substance use disorders (SUDs) are among the most common psychiatric conditions, resulting in serious behavioral impairments and cognition decline. Acute and chronic drug abuse, drug dependency and drug withdrawal result in significant alteration of the electroencephalogram (EEG). EEG biofeedback has been used in the treatment of alcohol and mixed substance abuse in residential inpatient populations. More recent outpatient approaches have used quantitative EEG (qEEG) guided neurofeedback, neurofeedback (NFB) integrated with motivational interviewing and LORETA neurofeedback.

Nonpharmacological methods of therapeutically influencing the brain have become widely used by clinical practitioners, and there is an accumulating body of outcome research. This chapter introduces readers to existing neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) methodologies, as well as different modalities of neurotherapy for brain stimulation. Neurofeedback methods include symptom-based neurofeedback, neurofeedback guided by quantitative electroencephalography data, neurofeedback based on normative database Z-score and LORETA data, the Low Energy Neurofeedback System, slow cortical potentials training, fMRI neurofeedback, hemoencephalography training and infra-low frequency training.

Quantitative EEG (qEEG) has become an increasingly common method of assessment in the field of neurofeedback. The International Society for Neurofeedback and Research (ISNR) has issued a position paper advocating its widespread use within the field, and many entering the field gravitate toward its use because of its empirical value in the assessment and determination of protocols for intervention with neurofeedback. At the same time, the neuroimaging field has also increasingly taken an interest in qEEG and begun to employ

This review provides an updated overview of both basic and clinical research literature, neurophysiological rationale and current methods of practice pertaining to clinical neurofeedback. While considering general issues of physiology, epilepsy and learning principles, it focuses on the treatment of epilepsy with sensorimotor rhythm (SMR) training, arguably the best established clinical application of EEG operant conditioning. The basic research literature provides ample data to support a very detailed model of the neural generation of SMR, as well as the most

Neurofeedback involves EEG frequencies that are unique to each patient and influenced by the introduction of psychotropic medication. This requires the neurofeedback provider to understand the behavioral correlates of EEG frequencies and the effects introduced by psychotropics. This chapter is designed to provide an overview of broad classes of medications related to cognitive and EEG effects, as well as to offer implications for the neurofeedback provider in incorporating these effects to optimize treatment design. The chapter provides an overview of

The purpose of this chapter is to examine hidden factors affecting neurofeedback treatment. It proposes a sociotechnical systems field theory of the neurofeedback treatment setting to help the therapist think about these factors beyond the specifics of this article. A typology of therapist styles in this model is proposed – Buddy, Technocrat, Integrated Practitioner and Withdrawn – to help the therapist identify his or her impact on the field of treatment. Case vignettes are presented as illustrations, along with one case with

This chapter provides a brief introduction to neurofeedback as practiced by the author, followed by a rather detailed description of vision therapy, which he has found to be an excellent supplement, especially with many cases of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and traumatic brain injury. The chapter provides basic information about the problems created by impaired control of binocular eye movement, and the use of orthoptic vision therapy to correct functional visual problems such as poor convergence and divergence. Poor binocular

In these times of escalating healthcare costs in the United States, EEG biofeedback – also called neurofeedback – looks like a very promising form of treatment because of its noninvasive properties and relative cost-effectiveness. Increased numbers of medical conditions are emerging in which neurofeedback shows improvement of their symptoms. However, in only a few neuropsychiatric disorders, which include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, has the effectiveness of neurofeedback been well documented by randomized studies. Therefore, more well-designed studies are needed to increase the

Developmental disorders cover vast, often overlapping diagnostic territories. Originating in childhood, many of these disorders continue to produce symptoms and functional difficulties throughout the individual’s life. Some developmental disorders have strong genetic components; others are of unknown etiology. Two of the most important are disorders of attention and seizure disorders, which are covered in separate chapters. This chapter focuses on autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disabilities, dyslexia, disorders of bowel and bladder elimination control, and sleep. As research progresses, the

Past and possible future trends and major developments in neurotherapy are reviewed and put into context. Neurotherapy has comprised several broad areas that can be divided into volitional and nonvolitional interventions. One common element of these approaches is the goal of altering (“modulating”) neuronal activity, in the pursuit of improved efficiency and effectiveness. A wide range of techniques has evolved that are generally used either sequentially or in combination. Integrated methods that incorporate multiple approaches are becoming increasingly important and

Thought disorders are one of the more debilitating of psychiatric disorders, and one of the more difficult to treat. The results of neuroimaging studies using EEG, qEEG, LORETA or VARETA with thought disorders will be discussed. The utility of electrophysiological methods in differential diagnosis and treatment will be discussed in detail. This chapter explores the use of various brain-based treatment modalities and technologies for the treatment of thought disorders.

Depression continues to be on the increase in the United States and worldwide, according to current statistics, which supports the need to expand potential treatment options beyond psychotropic medications. Psychotropic medications are still the primary approach to treatment and considered best practice in the medical community for mood disorders; however, studies show limited response rates to medication in participants but a high placebo response rate.

One of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide is brain injury. Most cases are mild, and the prevalence of disability and its impact are not well known. In the last 20 years neuroimaging technologies have changed the way we approach traumatic brain injury (TBI), especially mild injury (MTBI), and its sequelae. New treatment tools have been emerging in parallel with diagnostic technologies. Here, these noninvasive tools will be reviewed, especially those with therapeutic value that have a direct impact
