Does neurofeedback therapy really work?

There have been over 40 years of research into the effects of neurofeedback. Initially, results were mixed but in recent decades there has been a dramatic shift to generally positive outcomes with the rapid advancement of computing and software. The efficacy of neurofeedback on neuroplasticity is well documented and studied with the vast majority showing the positive effects of the training’s ability to affect targeted change in the brain. There are many studies published in peer-reviewed journals documenting the positive effects of neurofeedback therapy on issues such as addictions, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, sleep disorders, and post-concussion syndrome. Even more recent research into personalized neurofeedback (feedback based on individuals’ qeeg maps as opposed to diagnosis) has yielded primarily positive results.
