Brief summary of evidence supporting the efficacy of biofeedback for epilepsy:
Sterman is the original pioneer of this therapy. His (2000) review of 18 studies reporting clinical findings in the treatment of seizure disorders with EEG feedback showed that out of 174 patients treated, 82% demonstrated significant (greater than 30%) seizure reduction, with an average reduction exceeding 50%. Many of the studies also reported reductions in seizure severity and 5% of patients experienced complete control for periods of tabulation up to one year. Few controlled studies have been done in this area.
