Abstract

The use of electroencephalogram neurofeedback has been studied in a number of psychiatric disorders, especially for the treatment of attentiondeficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, many clinicians are not aware of this treatment and the level of evidence supporting its use. In this article, we review the evidence for the efficacy of neurofeedback in several psychiatric disorders and also discuss the specific neurofeedback protocols that have been found effective in the treatment of ADHD, such as slow cortical potential, theta/beta ratio, and sensorimotor rhythm neurofeedback.
