Changes After EEG Biofeedback and Cognitive Retraining in Adults with Mild Traumatic Brain Iinjury and ADHD

ABSTRACT. Introduction. Adults diagnosed with mild traumatic brain
injury (mTBI) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) were
treated with EEG Biofeedback and cognitive retraining.
Methods. Psychological and neuropsychological tests were completed
at pre-treatment and post-treatment and compared to a normal
control group that did not receive training, but tested on two occasions.
Results. The results found significant improvement on full scale
attention and full scale response accuracy of a continuous performance
task in the mTBI and ADHD groups compared to the control group. A
self report showed a significant decline in symptoms in the mTBI and
ADHD groups compared to the control group. Errors on a problem
solving task decreased only in the mTBI group.
Discussion. The treatment model used in this study showed significant
improvement in the sustained attention of individuals diagnosed with
mTBI and ADHD after twenty treatment sessions.
