Abstract
Scientific evidence supporting the reliability of neurofeedback (NF) in modifying the electroencephalographic (EEG) pattern is still limited. Several studies in NF research and clinical setting have been focused to increase sensory-motor rhythm (SMR) and simultaneously decrease theta activity with the aim of increasing attention performance and reducing hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. The goal of the present study was to assess the efficacy of NF training to enhance the SMR/theta ratio across sixteen sessions of training in eight healthy volunteers. Results suggested an increase of SMR/theta across weeks of training. Theta activity was strongly and steadily...
