Objective: A pilot study to preliminarily examine the effects of Prism EFP NeuroFeedback (NF) in adult ADHD. Method: Prism EFP NF is a form of NF specifically designed to target emotional dysregulation (ED) through down regulation of amygdala activity. Prism EFP NF has been shown to improve other disorders with significant ED. Nine participants with adult ADHD received an open trial of Prism EFP NF consisting of fifteen sessions over 8 weeks; all completed at least 5 weeks of treatment with seven completing all 8 weeks. Outcomes were assessed by change in ADHD symptoms from baseline to End of Treatment. Results: About two-third reduction was seen in total DSM ADHD symptom scores (primary outcome measure) with improvement observed in all other clinical measures. No significant adverse events were seen. Conclusion: This preliminary trial found substantial effects of Prism EFP NF on ADHD/ED symptoms and global impairment.
