Abstract

This case study describes a 12-month intervention program utilizing neurofeedback and cognitive training to remediate working memory, attention, and response inhibition following a traumatic brain injury for a 33-year-old male. Measures of the above-identified cognitive abilities were made at six points during the course of the intervention. Testing results indicated improvements in verbal working memory, visual response control, and auditory and visual attention. Results were mixed for visual working memory and auditory response inhibition. This case study provides some evidence to support the use of neurofeedback and cognitive training to remediate cognitive abilities. Implications for the use of such intervention techniques are discussed within the context of individuals who have experienced a traumatic brain injury as well as those who experience learning-related deficits (e.g., attention disorders and learning disorders).
