Abstract

Neurofeedback and Quantitative Electroencephalography

Author(s): Elmar WJ. Weiler, Klaus Brill Ken H. Tachiki,2and Dieter Schneider

This study was conducted in an attempt to determine the efficacy of neurofeedback (NFB) in the treatment of patients suffering from vertigo or tinnitus. Results indicated that after NFB, power for delta and theta bands was reduced; however, an increase of power was noted for the alpha bands. Furthermore, normalization was observed for the vestibular evoked potentials (VestEP). After NFB, a normalization of the VestEP was also demonstrated in a patient suffering from a bilateral tinnitus . A follow-up study (12 months after NFB) demonstrated that the VestEP were normal.
