The Effect of Neurofeedback on Brain Waves in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Abstract:
Objectives
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a group of neurodevelopment syndromes with impairments in social communications and restrictive or repetitive behaviors. Neurofeedback is a new method that may regulate neuro and metabolic function in brain. This study is semi-experimental, with pre and post test.
Methods
In 26 children with ASD, 40 sessions of Neurofeedback were done. Brain waves were recorded before and after intervention by EEG/ERP 19 channels.
Results
The average of Theta (low frequency) power decreased, but there was no difference in the Gamma of Gamma waves (High frequency).
Discussion
Our findings showed that the implementation of Neurofeedback sessions improved Theta, which leads to better social communication.
