New Neurofeedback For ADHD Book Released (With Exclusive Discount Code)

The front cover of the book, Neurofeedback and State Regulation in ADHD: A Therapy Without Medication The book, “Neurofeedback And State Regulation In ADHD: A Therapy Without Medication,” by Werner Van den Bergh, M.D. received official publication on October 25, 2010. This is a timely book in light of the recent finding that “Neurofeedback for ADHD Achieves A ‘Level 5 – Efficacious and Specific’ Efficacy Rating.” Check the end of this report for an exclusive and time limited discount code for BMED Report readers that includes free shipping.

Van den Bergh, a Belgium neuropsychiatrist, provides an expert review of pediatric ADHD and neurofeedback research, and he illuminates the sometimes complex neurophysiological deficits in ADHD. In addition, the author provides a detailed examination of the quantitative electroencephalographic (EEG / QEEG) characteristics of people with ADHD, as well as coverage of a broad range of psychophysiological topics that include LORETA (low resolution electromagnetic tomographic activity) brain imaging and slow cortical potentials (SCP) neurofeedback.

A major contribution of this new work, and possibly a ground-breaking one, is that Dr. Van den Bergh identifies a relationship among sleep-disturbance EEG research and ADHD pathology. This lead to the discovery that children with ADHD have brainwaves that are similar to healthy people who are sleep deprived. Think about that for a second, and the behaviors that typify ADHD become less mysterious. The author explains why SMR- (sensorimotor rhythm) neurofeedback is an effective and long-lasting non-medication treatment for ADHD given that SMR brain waves are the daytime equivalent of nighttime sleep spindles, which are disturbed in ADHD. In short, Dr. Van den Bergh argues that SMR-neurofeedback targets and corrects the core neurophysiologic problems in ADHD.

Throughout the book, Dr. Van den Bergh further argues that ADHD is not a disorder of “will-power,” or the desire to misbehave, as it is so often perceived by others, but instead represents a distinct neurological condition that should receive compassion instead of scorn from parents and teachers. The author also outlines steps that clinicians, parents, and teachers can take to improve the lives of those with ADHD, particularly children.
