Neurofeedback brain training regimen reverses cognitive impairment symptoms in over 90% of chemo brain patients tested, a new study by The Applied Brain Research Foundation of Ohio shows.
It’s been dismissed as bunk science for decades. But does neurofeedback deserve a second look?
Postcancer cognitive impairment (PCCI) is observed in a substantial number of breast cancer survivors, persisting for as long as 20 years in some subgroups. Although compensatory strategies are frequently suggested, no restorative interventions have yet been identified. This study examined the feasibility of EEG biofeedback (“neurofeedback”) and its potential effectiveness in reducing PCCI as well as the fatigue, sleep disturbance, and psychological symptoms that frequently accompany PCCI.
