But the strategy doesn't work for every child and shouldn't be thought of as a replacement for drug treatment, Dr. Renate Drechsler of the University of Zurich, the study's lead author, told Reuters Health."Impaired control of attention is a core problem in ADHD," Drechsler explained via e-mail. "Neurofeedback is aimed at learning how to regulate cortical activation in order to induce better attentional control, and thereby improve a main symptom directly."
