Neurofeedback is effective for patients with Alzheimer’s in improving their brain’s functionality, improving executive functions, improving cognitive and affective symptoms, such as enhancing working memory and attention, leading to performance improvements.
Neurofeedback is considered a safe treatment intervention generally, although there can be side effects that are usually mild and transitory. While majority of patients don’t experience any serious side effects, rare reactions may include low energy or fatigue, anxiety or depression, dizziness or headaches, muscle tension, social anxiety, cognitive impairment, etc.
The number of sessions depends on the severity of symptoms in the patient with Alzheimer’s and their response to the training sessions.
