The paper attached here is a comment from 3 well respected neurofeedback clinicians who compared published research studies that did not find learning effects with those that did and clearly articulated the reasons behind the lack of demonstrated results in the unsuccessful studies. The value of this comparison can not be overestimated in that it is precisely this type of platform and methodology agnostic comparison that is needed to clarify disparities of this kind in the scientific literature. The challenge it also lays at the feet of neurofeedback researchers and clinicians is also way overdue in terms of demanding a far higher standard of methodological and conceptual/theoretical congruence around and constructing applied clinical trials. Quietmind Foundation is committed to the model of research efficacy proposed by the authors and our Institutional Review Board is uniquely qualified to evaluate the safety, ethical treatment and scientific merit of such studies.
Here's one of our longer term folks we've been working with who was diagnosed with severe dementia 7 years ago and on multiple medications and doing rather poorly in terms of mood, aggression and communication. She's not been in the water for 3+ years and now is able to enjoy herself with caregivers nearby and even swim on her own. She's on no psychiatric or dementia medication for the past 6 years and is responding well to the Bredesen protocol, photobiomodulation and brainwave biofeedback training.
We want to promote the potential for recovery and healing and enjoying life and not treating the diagnosis of dementia with fear and giving in to the desire to withdraw from life.
