Ending the Evidentiary & Insurance Reimbursement Bias Against Neurofeedback to Treat Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: It Will Take Clinician Action in Addition to the Compelling Science

Description: This article argues against the treatment of Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with stimulant medication and behavior therapy, which are also typically reimbursed by healthcare insurers. Evidence suggests that these treatments fail to result in sustained benefit for the vast majority of children who receive them as demonstrated in the NIMH-funded MTA Cooperative study, the gold standard study in ADHD treatment effectiveness research. The authors instead look at the use of neurofeedback which is uniquely suited to treat the neuronal dysregulation that is common in people diagnosed with ADHD. However, healthcare insurers do not regularly cover this treatment method, so the authors direct readers to resources to appeal insurers' denial of coverage for neurofeedback.

Energy Conversion During Expansion of a Solid-Particle-Entrained Gas

Description: This article describes pneumatic energy being converted into solid particle kinetic energy as a solid-particle-entrained gas that flows downward through a vertical nozzle. For the conditions studied, the solid particles serve as a heat exchange medium to enable a gas expansion that is nearly isothermal. Also, the kinetic energy associated with the two-phase fluid is predominantly that associated with subsonic solid-particle motion. The kinetic energy of the solid particles is converted into other forms using a low-speed turbine. A theoretical description of the process is presented, and the initiation of an experimental effort to study the process is described.
