Important benefits were demonstrable with cognitive and neurophysiological measures which were predicted on the basis of regression models of learning.
These are initial steps in providing a much needed scientific basis to neurofeedback, but much remains to be done.
Results showed that the members of the Neurofeedback group learned to increase the spectral power of the alpha frequency range as well as the alpha/thêta ratio, and that compared with the members of the two other groups, neurofeedback training resulted in a more pronounced decrease, albeit without any relation to changes in EEG activity and the level of stress and anxiety of participants undergoing such training.
Yet contrary to expectations, no improvement of memory performance (differed recall of words and learning of lists of words) was observed.
This influx of information clearly lends itself to a smarter approach for building athletes.These are initial steps in providing a much needed scientific basis to neurofeedback, but much remains to be done. Here we review our studies directed at validating SMR, beta and alpha-theta protocols for improving attention, memory, mood and music and dance performance in healthy participants.Found in Progress in Brain Research, Volume 159, 2006.Summary: As the title suggests, these researches pursued further research on the question of neurofeedback and how effective it is.
