Feedback was accompanied by a significant reduction of cortical excitability. This was probably responsible for the clinical efficacy of the training; a significant reduction of days with migraine and other headache parameters was observed.

…we conclude that neurofeedback treatment for ADHD can be considered “Efficacious and Specific” (Level 5) with a large effect sizes for inattention and impulsivity and a medium ES for hyperactivity.

Repeated-measures revealed strongly significant improvements (P < .001) on all 4 cognitive measures (perceived cognitive impairment, comments from others, perceived cognitive abilities, and impact on quality of life), the fatigue scale, and the 4 psychological scales (somatization, depression, anxiety and global severity index) as well as on 3 of 8 sleep scales (quality, daytime dysfunction, and global).
