The Foundation for Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation, based in California, dedicated to encouraging research into the mechanisms underlying neurofeedback and its clinical applications. FNAN seeks to foster meaningful scientific research by providing technical assistance and other types of support to individuals seeking to extend the horizons of the field. It can provide technical advice and, in some instances, partial support in the form of neurofeedback instrumentation towards this end.
Award for Excellence in Publication. The Foundation regularly presents an award to the authors of what it considers to be the best neurofeedback article published during the preceding twelve months. (Click on the Annual Awards page link under More above for more information.)
Ongoing Research. The Foundation for Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience provides technical assistance and partial support to investigations recently conducted or presently underway. Here's some of what we've done:
Trauma Research (University of Western Ontario)
The Foundation has provided equipment and other support for an ongoing study of the use of neurofeedback with trauma survivors under the oversight of Dr. Ruth Lanius at the University of Western Ontario.
Trauma Research (Trauma Research Foundation and the Trauma Center at JRI): The Foundation has provided equipment and technical assistance for clinical investigation of the use of neurofeedback with individuals with a history of trauma led by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk.
Pain Control Among Cancer Survivors (M.D. Anderson Cancer Center): The Foundation has provided equipment for use in a study of the comparative efficacy of neurofeedback and dose-limiting duloxetine chemotherapy in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy overseen by Dr. Sarah Prinsloo.
Introduction of Neurofeedback as a Treatment Modality (Lady Reading Hospital, Pechawar, Pakistan): The Foundation provided training, technical support and equipment to assist in establishing a neurofeedback program at the largest teaching hospital in Pakistan's Kyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province. The Foundation continues to support this undertaking.
Training Doctoral Students in Neurofeedback (Mt. Mercy University): The Foundation has provided equipment to assist in training doctoral students under the oversight of longtime neurofeedback researcher Dr. Randall Lyle.
Neurofeedback and Mental Retardation Investigation (Istanbul). Dr. Tanju Surmeli, recipient of the FNAN award for the best article contributing to the field of neurofeedback used his award money to continue his research into the efficacy of neurofeedback in working with individuals suffering from mental retardation.
Hemineglect/Empathy (Geneva): Dr. Tomas Ros at the University of Geneva has been using equipment supplied through the Foundation in a study of the potential impact of neurofeedback in addressing such topics as the effects of visual deficits that arise as a result of a stroke or strokes (hemineglect) and the effects of neurofeedback on empathy.
Autism Study (University of Missouri): A University of Missouri team led by Guy McCormack, clinical professor and chair of the Department of Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science at the University’s School of Health Professions studied the use of neurofeedback training for 40 children who have been diagnosed as falling within the autism disorders spectrum.
ADHD School Pilot (Stamford, Connecticut): The Foundation for Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience provided equipment and technical assistance to James Cooney for a pilot investigation of the use of neurofeedback to alleviate the problems associated with ADHD in a high school setting.
Award for Best Neurofeedback Publication of the Year: The Foundation for Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience regularly issues an award for what it considers to have been the best publication in the field of neurofeedback during the preceding year.
