Using neurofeedback training in children with autism spectrum disorder [abstract]
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This study aims to assess the effectiveness of neurofeedback training on improving attention and social responsiveness in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Children with ASD may experience such deficits due to areas of hyperconnectivity or hypoconnectivity among cortical structures. Neurofeedback training aims to normalize connectivity in the brain, while teaching self-regulation of cortical activity which in turn regulates behavior. This study will use a single subject multiple baseline design with pre-test and post-test measures.
