Expert Opinions on Neurofeedback (also called EEG Biofeedback)
"The literature, which lacks any negative study of substance, suggests that EEG biofeedback therapy should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated such a wide spectrum of efficacy, it would be universally accepted and widely used (Clinical Electroencephalography, 2000)."
Frank Duffy, MD, Neurologist, Head of the Neuroimaging Department and of Neuroimaging Research at Boston's Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School Professor
"In my 38 years of practice, I have never seen any treatment that comes close to producing the results that Neurofeedback offers... I have seen results achieved in days and weeks that previously took months and years to achieve, using the best methods available to us."
Jack Woodward, MD, Board Certified Psychiatrist
"EEG biofeedback meets the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry criteria for clinical guideline for treatment of ADHD, seizure disorders, anxiety (OCD, GAD, PTSD, phobias), depression, reading disabilities, and addiction disorders. This suggests that EEG biofeedback should always be considered as an intervention for these disorders by the clinician."

"In my experience with EEG Biofeedback and ADD, many people are able to improve their reading skills and decrease their need for medication. Also, EEG biofeedback has helped to decrease impulsivity and aggressiveness. It is a powerful tool...(Change Your Brain Change Your Life, pp.143-144):"

"Among the newer approaches to managing ADD, the most exciting is a learning process called neurofeedback. It empowers a person to shift the way he pays attention. After more than twenty-five years of research in university labs, neurofeedback has become more widely available. This is a pleasing development because neurofeedback has no negative side effects (The ADD Book, p. 205)."
