Treating ADHD With Suggestion: Neurofeedback and Placebo Therapeutics

Objective: We propose that clinicians can use suggestion to help treat conditions such as ADHD. Methods: We use EEG neurofeedback as a case study, alongside evidence from a recent pilot experiment utilizing a sham MRI scanner to highlight the …

A Consensus Framework for Neurofeedback Research (and the Perils of Unfounded Neuroreductionism): Reply to Micoulaud-Franchi and Fovet (2018)

We were pleased to read the constructive commentary (Micoulaud-Franchi & Fovet, 2018) on our original piece (Thibault & Raz, 2017). In this response, we build on the theoretical framework for studying neurofeedback that the commentators sketch out …

The psychology of neurofeedback: Clinical intervention even if applied placebo.

Advocates of neurofeedback make bold claims concerning brain regulation, treatment of disorders, and mental health. Decades of research and thousands of peer-reviewed publications support neurofeedback using electroencephalography (EEG-nf); yet, few …

Imaging Posture Veils Neural Signals

Whereas modern brain imaging often demands holding body positions incongruent with everyday life, posture governs both neural activity and cognitive performance. Humans commonly perform while upright; yet, many neuroimaging methodologies require …

Neurofeedback, Self-Regulation, and Brain Imaging: Clinical Science and Fad in the Service of Mental Disorders

Neurofeedback draws on multiple techniques that propel both healthy and patient populations to self-regulate neural activity. Since the 1970s, numerous accounts have promoted electroencephalography-neurofeedback as a viable treatment for a host of …
