About Neurofeedback and ADD/ADHD
Neurofeedback trains the brain to produce more of the brainwave patterns that are necessary for sustained focus. It also trains the brain to produce less of the patterns that are responsible for distractibility and anxiety. There have been thousands of articles published on the effectiveness of Neurofeedback. A good summary specific to ADHD is provided in this review article by Jonathan Walker, MD. It explains how neurofeedback produces a long lasting effect, without the substantial disadvantages of tolerance and side-effects that are common with medication.
