Neurofeedback for Traumatic Brain Injury
How Can Neurofeedback Therapy Be Used to Treat Traumatic Brain Injury?
Five small group studies have been completed investigating the effectiveness of neurofeedback for brain injury (TBI). Thousands of anecdotal case studies have also been reported. These results suggest that neurofeedback is a promising intervention for impairments of short and long term memory, attention, and problem solving deficits resulting from closed head injury. Several studies showed that neurofeedback results in greater improvement in function that other forms of rehabilitation, including computerized exercises, use of strategies, and medication.
With brain injury, it is critically important to understand how the injury impacted brain function overall. At Cognitive Solutions Learning Center, Inc., we measure brain function with a quantitative EEG brain map, so that we can see the areas of the brain that have been negatively impacted by the injury. Once we can determine the source of the problem, we target that area for change through neurofeedback brain training.
What is the Length of Neurofeedback Treatment?
Neurofeedback training at Cognitive Solutions Learning Center in Chicago consists of a series of thirty-minute sessions. A typical treatment program requires 20 to 40 training sessions. Because Neurofeedback is a learned skill, improvement is gradual and occurs over time. Some individuals may need more training to achieve the full benefits of the therapy. Improvements in attention, organization, and behavior are typically well retained on a long- term basis.
