Biofeedback and Self Regulation (1991 Sep) 16(3) :201-25 Lubar JF Discourse on the development of EEG diagnostics and biofeedback for attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorders.
This article presents a review of work done by Dr. Lubar and colleagues have been doing during the past 15 years developing a rationale for the diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and treatment of ADHD employing EEG biofeedback technique.
Biofeedback and Self Regulation (1995 Mar) 20(1) :83-99 Lubar J.F., Swartwood M.O., O'Donnel P.H. Evaluation of the effectiveness of EEG neurofeedback training for ADHD in a clinical setting as measured by changes in T.O.V.A. scores, behavioral ratings, and WISC-R performance.
A study of 23 ADHD children and adolescents which received 2-3 months intensive neurofeedback training. Part 1 indicated that subjects who successfully decreased theta activity showed significant improvement in T.O.V.A. performance; Part 2 revealed significant improvement in parent ratings following neurofeedback training; and Part 3 indicated significant increases in WISC-R scores following neurofeedback training.
Medical Psychotherapy (1990), Vol. 3, pp. 57-68 Tansey, M. A. Righting the Rhythms of Reason: EEG Biofeedback training as a therapeutic modality in a clinical office setting.
This study presents a clinical, office setting based, treatment regimens for learning disabilities utilizing EEG biofeedback training. 24 youngster with brainwave signature patterns reflective of a brain-based learning disability were given EEG 14hz biofeedback training. It is noteworthy that the brainwave signatures and WISC-R profiles "normalized" as a result of the training with significant remediation of the learning disorders. There was significant (>15 pt.) growth in WISC-R full scale, verbal and performance IQ scores reflecting improved brain function and resultant test performance with a normalization of verbal performance IQ anomalies.

A follow up study ten years after treatment was terminated. This ten year follow-up confirms the long term stability of the results of the EEG 14hz biofeedback regimen.
Journal of Neurotherapy, Summer (1995) p 48-59 Thomas R. Rossiter, Ph.D and Theodore J. LaVaque, Ph.D. A comparison of EEG biofeedback and psychostimulants in treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorders.
This study compared the effects of EEG biofeedback and stimulant medication in reducing AD/HD symptoms. The results indicate that the EEG biofeedback program is an effective alternative to stimulants and may be the treatment of choice when medication is ineffective. has side effects., or compliance is a problem.
Australian Journal of Psychology, 1991, Vol 43, 147-153 Tansey, M. A. PH.D. Wechsler (WISC-R) changes following treatment of learning disabilities via EEG biofeedback training in a private practice setting.
This study presents WISC-R profiles and changes following the application a an EEG biofeedback treatment regimens for brain-based learning disabilities. 22 of 24 subjects manifested increased in their full scale IQ scores of a least one standard deviation (15 IQ points); with the remaining 2 cases showing an increase 14 IQ points and 13 IQ points respectively for all subject. As a group, their post-EEG biofeedback training scores, substantially exceeded their pre-EEG biofeedback training scores over and above expected gains due to a retest factor.

This paper presents a set of electrophysiological and neurophysiological processes as bases for the efficacy of neurofeedback training for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and schizophrenia
Biofeedback and Self-Regulation Vol, 20. No 1, 1995 Janzen T., Graap K., Stephanson S., Marshall W., Fritzsimmons G. Differences in baseline EEG measures for ADD and normally achieving preadolescent males.
This study was designed as a replication of previous studies describing dynamic EEG differences between behaviorally dissimilar groups. This study is intended as a reference point from which other researchers can continue to establish the EEG correlate of "on-task" behavior. Eight ADD children and eight normally achieving controls were assessed using dynamic EEG measures. Results are reported for the task of baseline for reading, drawing, and eye open. Significant amplitude differences between the groups were demonstrated in the theta . These results are discussed in relation to EEG neuro-feedback training paradigms and the importance of establishing normative "on task " value.
