Neurofeedback for Cognitive Dysfunction (Under-achievers)

Cognitive dysfunction (Learning Disability) description

Academic achievement is highly valued in our society. Parents often invest a great deal of time and emotional energy into ensuring their children’s academic success, but it can be extremely upsetting when a child with no obvious intellectual deficits does not achieve as expected. Cognitive dysfunction in reading, mathematics, and written expression are characterized by performance that is substantially below what would be expected given the person’s age, intelligence quotient (IQ) score and education.


Cognitive dysfunction symptoms

Children with cognitive dysfunction may also have short attention spans and problems with concentration. Other symptoms include:



However, some may be conscientious and hard working yet unable to attain satisfactory results.


Cognitive dysfunction biochemistry

Theories about the causes of cognitive dysfunctions include genetic, neurobiological, and environmental factors.  Many research indicated that the following factors affect our cognitive ability:




Cognitive dysfunction intervention

Mercury exposure can cause behavioural problems such as inattentiveness and memory loss while high level of cadmium is correlated with low academic achievements. A high copper/zinc ratio has also been found to cause behavioural and learning difficulties. Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis test is an inexpensive yet effective method of identifying mineral levels and toxicity in the body. Intervention through supplementation and dietary habits could be designed to overcome the imbalances and toxicity.



Functional magnetic resonance imaging scanning has been used previously to

compare how children with and without reading disorders processed simple tasks

(Temple et al., 2003). After 8 weeks of intensive training on a computer program

that help them to work on their and language processing skills, these dysfunctional

children not only improve their reading skills, but their brains started functioning in a

way similar to the brains of their peers who were good readers.


With the QEEG brain mapping, similar brain imaging can be done. Many cognitive

dysfunctional children have shown cortical fatigue or exhaustion. Poor arousal level has also been found at all parts of the brain and in many cases, their crucial parts of the brain shuts down whenever they try to study.



Neurofeedback is non-drug alternative intervention for cognitive dysfunction.

Neurofeedback intervention aims at exercising specific parts of the brain.  With the

brain exercise, the neural activities at these specific locations of the brain can be

directly regulated. For those with cognitive dysfunction, neurofeedback can help to

reduce Theta brain wave to increase arousal and to regulate Beta brain wave at

specific regions to enhance cognitive functions. Finally, these regulations will result
