I am a PhD student at the University of East Anglia, supervised by Dr Rutterford and Professor Corr.
My research is examining the effectiveness of neurofeedback home training on concentration abilities, impulsiveness and response to rewards.
Neurofeedback is a form of brain wave training, whereby the individual is stimulated to optimise the activity of particular brainwaves via visual and/or auditory reinforcement on a computer. Neurofeedback has been shown to successfully improve attention, behavioural control and peak performance in typical individuals as well being an alternative to traditional medication treatments for conditions such as ADHD.
My first study is examining the effect of neurofeedback home training on concentration abilities in typical children, and is looking to recruit children aged between 7 and 17 with no clinical diagnosis.
My second study is examining the effect of neurofeedback home training in combination with or without stimulant medication on concentration abilities in children diagnosed with ADHD, combined subtype. I am looking to recruit children diagnosed with ADHD, combined subtype, aged between 7 and 17 years old.
If you are interested in this research, would like to know more or would like to take part, please contact me on H.Wachnianin@uea.ac.uk who will happily discuss this further with you.
