Autism and Neurofeedback Research Summary

Quick listing of 4 studies.

Autism and Neurofeedback Research Summary

 

EEG Neurofeedback study (Jerusiewicz, 2002)

•         20 children with ASD in experimental group.     

•         20 children with ASD in control group

•         Experimental group completed an average of 36 neurofeedback sessions

•      Pre- and post-treatment scores on the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) were collected.

Pilot study results: percentage of improvement on ATEC

                       Neurofeedback group        Control group

Speech/Language            29%                       0%

Sociability                         33%                       7%

Sensory/Cognitive            17%                       0%

Health/Physical/Behavior  26%                       5%

Total                                 26%                       3%

 

HEG Neurofeedback research (Limsila & Toomim, 2003)

•         Largest HEG study to date.

•         180 autistic children in Thailand

•         After 40 sessions, the cohort's mean HEG readings (prefrontal activation) increased 53%

•         Of the 81 subjects who were studying in public school, 86% increased their GPA by more than 0.5 (mean = 0.94) points on a 4-point scale

•         Only 4% decreased their GPA by more than 0.5 points (mean = 0.57)

 

EEG Neurofeedback research (Coben & Padolsky, 2006)

•         37 subjects with autism •         20 EEG neurofeedback sessions

•         Wait list control group (n=12) matched for gender, age, race, handedness, IQ & treatment

•         89% success rate

•         40% reduction of autistic symptoms on ATEC

•         Significant improvements on neuropsychological tests of Attention, Language, Visual-Perception & Executive Functioning

•         QEEG & infrared imaging demonstrated gains

 

HEG Neurofeedback Research (Coben 2006)

•         28 subjects with autism

•         20 nir or pir HEG sessions

•         Wait list control group (n=12) matched for gender, age, race, handedness, IQ & treatment

•         All subjects had previously completed 20 sessions of EEG neurofeedback

•         All subjects had identified frontal system dysfunction based on neurobehavioral testing, neuropsychological testing, infrared imaging, and QEEG data

•         90% success rate

•         42% reduction in autistic symptoms on ATEC

•         43% reduction in social interaction deficits

•         47% reduction in communication deficits

•         44% reduction in sensory/cognitive deficits

•         39% reduction in behavior deficits

•         Statistically significant (p < .05) improvements in neurobehavioral and neuropsychological functioning
