The use of neurofeedback (and possibly simple biofeedback) for the treatment of psychiatric symptoms of dementia appears very promising. While it is just an investigational study at this point, the neurofeedback training I am beginning just this week is showing significant differences in some of the other earlier participants.

A decription of the project can be read at http://www.quietmindfdn.org/dementia-therapy.

Yes! The literature review we commissioned showed many very promising activities which deserve further research. However it will be very hard to fund the needed research because no-one can own non-drug "treatments" unless there is some device is involved. We need lots of collective action to spur on the needed research. Don
