EEG training was conducted with EEG Spectrum’s standard Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) protocols of augmentation in either the sensorimotor rhythm (SMR, 12-15 Hz) spectral band, or the low beta (15-18 Hz) spectral band, concurrently with inhibition of excessive activity in the 4-7 Hz band and the 22-30 Hz band, typically at sensorimotor cortex (Cz, C3, and C4). Each training sessions consisted of 30 minutes on a Neurocybernetics instrument.
