Applied Neuroscience into ADHD, sleep and Depression.


Research Institute Brainclinics, founded in 2001 and based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, is specialised in applied neuroscience with a focus on mood, concentration and sleep problems as often seen in psychiatric disorders such as Depression, ADHD, OCD, and insomnia. Furthermore, Brainclinics is specialised in research into neuromodulation techniques such as rTMS, tDCS and neurofeedback, personalized medicine, Research Domain Criteria (RDoC), chronobiology, sleep and the circadian system.

Under the same name, Psychology Practice Bainclinics was established in 2006. Since 2014 Psychology Practice Brainclinics has become part of the international neuroCare Group with clinics in Nijmegen, The Hague, Munich, Sydney and other locations. In the Netherlands the clinics in Nijmegen and The Hague now operate under the name neuroCare Netherlands and more information can be found on the neuroCare website.

Meta-analysis confirms sustained effects of neurofeedback
Nijmegen, February 16th, 2018 - An international group of researchers conducted a meta-analysis that systematically looked at all available studies and found that after an intensive course of neurofeedback, the clinical benefit of neurofeedback on ADHD symptoms was maintained over a 6-month follow-up period (without treatment). At follow-up the effects of neurofeedback were not inferior to active treatments such as medication, whereas benefits for non-active control groups (such as cognitive training) were no longer present at follow-up. These results have now been published in the scientific journal European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.

Male and female brain rhythms show differences
The electric brain signals, measured by using EEG, of males and females show differences. The difference can’t be detected by visual inspection, not even by the trained eye of a neurologist. A ‘deep learning’ computer is able to find it. Researchers of the University of Twente, the University of Zürich and Brainclinics research institute in Nijmegen, publish these results in Scientific Reports of 15 February.
