EEG Neurofeedback Effects in Adolescent Anorexia Nervosa

A pre-post design including 22 females was used to evaluate the effectiveness of neurofeedback in the treatment of adolescent anorexia nervosa. Resting EEG measures and a psychological test-battery assessing eating behavior traits, clinical symptoms, emotionality, and mood were obtained. While both the experimental (n = 10) and control group (n = 12) received their usual maintenance treatment, the experimental group received 10 sessions of individual alpha frequency training over a period of 5 weeks as additional treatment.

The Effectiveness of Visual Short-Time Neurofeedback on Brain Activity and Clinical Characteristics in Alcohol Use Disorders: Practical Issues and Results.

The present study was carried out to examine the efficacy of alpha/theta neurofeedback (NF) with a new visual paradigm in a cohort of alcohol use disordered (AUD) patients (n = 25) treated in an Austrian therapeutic community center.

EEG-Neurofeedback and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy in a case of Adolescent Anhedonia with Substance Misuse: Mood/theta relations

There is substantial evidence confirming the efficacy of Neurofeedback with applications in clinical, educational and optimal performance domains. However, a psychodynamically informed NF-approach needs exploration. A male (19y), college student whose first year was being seriously compromised after severe, 18-month, polydrug misuse, was treated with 11 sessions including a 2-month Follow-up of Neurofeedback combined with Short-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

Therapeutic effects of neurofeedback in anorexia nervosa – preliminary results

Theoretical Background: Current literature shows that patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) exhibit reduced relative alpha power and increased beta power in the EEG (Hatch et al., 2010). Neurofeedback as operant conditioning technique is supposed to lead to an increase of positive therapy outcome by changing long-lasting EEG frequency patterns and by regulating the “hyperarousal” found in AN patients (Gunkelman & Johnstone, 2005).

EEG-Neurofeedback and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy in Adolescent Anhedonia with Substance Misuse: A Single Case Study

Background: There is substantial evidence confirming Neuro-feedback as an effective training method with applications in clinical, educational and optimal performance domains. However, a psychodynamically informed NF-approach needs further exploration. Method: A 19-year-old adolescent male, whose first college year was disrupted after a severe bout of polydrug misuse which lasted 18 months, was treated with 11 sessions of psychotherapy that included follow-ups with Neuro-feedback combined with Short-Tem Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
