A recent review of the research literature offers a favorable comparison of a technique called neurofeedback (or EEG biofeedback, as it is sometimes called) with drugs, for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.. A recent review of the literature examines the efficacy of neurofeedback, or EEG biofeedback, as it is sometimes called, as a viable alternative treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This article looks at current pharmacological treatment modalities - Ritalin, for instance, discussing its side effects and risks - and compares them to neurofeedback, behavior modification and cognitive behavioral treatment for ADHD. Lastly, it provides a brief history of neurofeedback treatment successes and clinical benefits, as compared to medication, and limitations are presented. The author clearly has a bias toward neurofeedback, but the review is nonetheless worthwhile and informative. Citation: Fox DJ, Tharp DF, Fox LC.
