Applied Neuroscience into ADHD, sleep and Depression.


Research Institute Brainclinics was founded in 2001 as an independent research institute, 
specialised in advancing the understanding of psychiatric disorders through brain imaging (QEEG, ERPs), chronobiology and sleep, Research Domain Criteria (RDoC), which knowledge should aid in a future of personalised medicine in mental health. Brainclinics is further specialised in the development and application of neuromodulation techniques such as neurofeedback in the treatment of ADHD and magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) in the treatment of depression and OCD.

Under the same name, Psychology Practice Bainclinics was founded in 2006. In this clinic new innovative treatments (neuromodulation techniques) were pioneered such as rTMS (Brain stimulation) in the treatment of depression (since 2006), OCD and Neurofeedback in the treatment of ADHD. In 2015 this clinic was acquired by the neuroCare Group and the protocols and assessments developed here form the basis for all neuroCare Clinics worldwide and more information can be found on the neuroCare website.

Better sleep by home-based personalized neurofeedback
Sinds 2004 passen we neurofeedback gericht op het Sensori-Motor Ritme (SMR) toe bij specifieke slaapproblemen, met name inslaap- en doorslaapproblemen. Een gecontroleerd onderzoek uit 2010 liet zien dat deze methode tot objectieve verbeteringen leidde, waaronder een toename van gemiddeld bijna een uur meer slaap per nacht. In principe zijn de verbeteringen van deze behandeling blijvend en zijn geen vervolgbehandelingen meer nodig. Deze methode is nu verder ontwikkeld in een thuis te gebruiken headset en bijbehorende app, waardoor deze behandeling op een meer kosteneffectieve manier kan worden toegepast, vandaar deze evaluatie. Dit onderzoek wordt in samenwerking uitgevoerd met Onderzoeksinstituut Brainclinics en neuroCare Nijmegen.

Brain activity predicts response to Ritalin in ADHD
Nijmegen, July 3rd, 2018 – Today results from the large multicenter iSPOT-A study were published in European Neuropsychopharmacology, demonstrating that brain activity can assist in predicting response to Ritalin in male adolescents with ADHD. In addition, this study clearly demonstrated gender differences in brain activity, where brain activity only predicted Ritalin response in males and not in females with ADHD. No differences in brain activity were found between children with and without ADHD, further demonstrating the value of brain imaging in prognosis rather than diagnosis.
