Research on Neurofeedback and study situation

Neurofeedback is becoming increasingly important in research. Since the method can improve the self-regulation of brain activity, there is a quite broad range of applications. Neurofeedback should always be seen as a component of an overall treatment concept.

In the meantime, there are numerous research projects that deal with the effectiveness of Neurofeedback in different fields of application. In addition, the sole application of Neurofeedback has moved into the focus of research. In this area, the number of scientific papers has increased exponentially over the last few years.

For epilepsy and AD(H)D there are currently the most contributions to the effectiveness of Neurofeedback. The associated meta-analyses confirm the effectiveness of the method. In addition, some controlled studies document the improved effect of addiction treatments in which Neurofeedback was used as a therapeutic component. There is still little, but promising work on, for example, migraine, tinnitus, sleep disorders, tic disorders, disorders of the autistic spectrum, brain damage and anxiety disorders.

Also for new methods such as ILF Neurofeedback there is more and more scientific work.

Enclosed you will find some references to student research projects and recommended literature. The compilation contains suggestions for classical Neurofeedback literature as well as for modern Neurofeedback methods.
