Neurofeedback Training as an Intervention in a Silent Epidemic: An Indian Scenario
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a ‘‘silent epidemic’’ that creates a significant burden on health care resources across the globe. TBI is a dynamic process that involves damage to the brain, thus leading to behavioral, cognitive, and emotional consequences and poor quality of life. Neurofeedback training (NFT) was employed as an intervention to study its efficacy in postconcussion symptoms, cognitive deficits, and quality of life. A pre-post design was adopted in which the intervention group underwent NFT and the other waitlist group served as a control. NFT was found to be efficacious in ameliorating postconcussion symptoms and cognitivedysfunctions and improving quality of life.
