"It is difficult if not impossible to dispute the effects of neurofeedback training after reading through the papers in this issue."
Frank Duffy M.D., Professor and Pediatric Neurologist at Harvard Medical School wrote about Neurofeedback: "In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy it would be universally accepted and widely used (p.v) It is a field to be taken seriously by all" (Clinical EEG and Neuroscience, January, 2000
BARRY STERMAN, Ph.D. (UCLA Medical School, Retired) wrote in 1981:
To the extent that functional substrates of behavior are manifest in the EEG, the ... field of EEG biofeedback may represent the most direct method of behavior modification yet conceived. Indeed, it has been established that operant conditioning methods can reliably alter EEG patterns [11, 12, 22, 28] and correlated behaviors [2, 8, 19, 21]. (p.405) Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews. 5, 405-412.
“In cases of TBI, neurofeedback is probably better than any medication or supplement…”

Independent evaluations of neurofeedback’s evidence-base are increasingly validating its effectiveness in treating the core symptoms of ADHD. A recent meta-analysis by Hodgson et al, which applied the same standard of scientific rigor necessary for study inclusion, found that behavior modification, school-based behavior therapy, behaviorally-based parent training, and behavioral self-monitoring each had negative effect sizes compared to the control group conditions prompting the authors to conclude that these commonly-used and healthcare insurance reimbursed ADHD treatments “cannot be deemed to be efficacious.” In contrast, neurofeedback was found to be more than twice as effective in treating the core symptoms of ADHD than any of the other included treatments. In October 2012, the company that maintains the American Academy of Pediatrics’ ranking of research support for psychosocial treatments awarded NFB the highest level of evidence-based support for the treatment of ADHD. Given the generally poor long-term outcomes for the most commonly reimbursed ADHD treatments and NFB’s substantial and growing evidence-base, neurofeedback clearly warrants the rating given it by Practicewise in efforts to inform the AAP of evidence based treatments for attention deficits and hyperactivity.
