Abstract [en]

Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback that focuses on regulating brain activity. The technique has been established in clinical use for treating epilepsy and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). This systematic review aims to investigate whether neurofeedback could be used to improve sports performance. Seven articles were extracted from Web of Science and Scopus. The included sports in the articles are golf, rifle shooting, and judo. The results did not indicate a performance improvement in golf, rifle shooting, and judo. Neurofeedback cannot be used to improve sports performance based on the included articles. However, the results are difficult to apply to overall performance due to the discrepancies in methods and neurofeedback protocols.
