Validating the efficacy of neurofeedback for optimising performance
The purpose of this study is to assess the hypothesis of the effect of neurofeedback (the ‘awakened mind’ model) on the memory performance of subjects aged over 65. Thêta/ bêta training for attention, concentration and memory improvement in the geriatric population.
30 participants were shared equally between 3 groups: an experimental group that underwent 4 neurofeedback training sessions; a non-neurofeedback group trained at relaxation; and a ‘waiting list’ control group. Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, 23, 109 (abstract).
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.
