|Official Title:||Pilot Study of EEG and Cerebral Blood Flow Biofeedback Training in Remediating Cognitive and Behavioral Deficits in Adults With a Dementing Illness.|
|Study Start Date :||June 2007|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||June 2008|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||June 2008|
No Intervention: Neurofeedback
Waitlist control group.
Experimental: QEEG-based Neurofeedback Training
A randomly selected half of participants waits 15 weeks for the other half to complete treatment, and are then reassessed, serving as controls. They then receive the same treatment as the experimental group.
Behavioral: QEEG-based Neurofeedback Training
EEG amplitude is measured and visual and auditory rewards are given when amplitude at specific locations is modified to meet preset threshholds.
Other Name: Neurofeedback
