Neurofeedback Training Can Improve Learning, Control of Body Movements

Teacher Insights

A new study on training with neurofeedback can help strengthen connectivity between left and right hemispheres of the brain, lead to better motor co-ordination and may help treat nervous disorders too.

A study was conducted by D'OrInstitute for Research and Education (IDOR) among 36 healthy volunteers in which nineteen were told to move the hand based on imagination while resting while 19 others were given placebo neurofeedback. Those who received real brain training showed increased connectivity of left and right hemispheres of the brain and improved control of body movements by the brain.


 Researchers hope that the new insight may help induce changes in braind at record speed and also the possibility of treating neurological disorders with a non-invasive technique.
