Research is continually being done to better understand the brain and the optimal way to do neurofeedback for various disorders.


In our practice neurofeedback has been proven helpful for approximately 70% of patients over the past two decades. It should be noted that it is common for the most experienced clinicians in a community to see the most complex, treatment resistant patients who have tried many other things first.

How good is the current research?

The original patient group treated was seizure disorders. The published data is convincing. Neurofeedback for ADHD has been shown to be as effective as medication but without the side effects, and with the gains lasting. There is some supportive data on Autism, PTSD, and a variety of other disorders. Unfortunately, this is expensive research to do given the length of individualized treatment, so many studies have small sample sizes, need to be replicated, and need more follow up data.


Neurofeedback Literature:

There numerous books about Neurofeedback, below are a few recommendations.

VCU-Medical College of VA Lecture

In 2010 I was asked to do a Grand Rounds Lecture at the Virginia Commonwealth University-Medical College of Virginia on Brainmapping and Neurofeedback. This was for the Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry. While there has been more research over the past ten years, the information in this video still holds up fairly well. It is reasonable to say that neurotherapy has been helpful for most people for a broad variety of brain-based and trauma-based problems. View the complete lecture HERE.
