Clinical Trial on Mente
In the independent US-based clinical trial, Mente was found to significantly improve cognitive, postural and behavioural outcomes in autistic children. The study was a double-blinded, sham-controlled trial in which significant improvements in social skills and communication have also been reported.
- Significant reductions in Delta, Theta and high Beta brainwaves
- Significant improvements in sensorimotor behaviour and posture
- Significant reduction of autistic behaviours
- Improvement of social engagement and executive function
It was one of the autism studies presented at the November 2018 World Autism Organisation’s International Conference in Houston. Please read the full clinical study results here. Watch Professor Carrick discuss the successful clinical trial here.
Further Research on Mente
In this article, home-based therapies for developmental brain conditions (ADHD, autism, learning disabilities) are reviewed and the impact of neurofeedback when used with specific diets to improve the autoimmunity to reduce the overall symptoms is emphasized
A study investigating the benefits and challenges of using Mente in a home environment and its implications in a Bangalore Montessori school, specifically in an early childhood classroom.
This case provides an overview of the role of Mente in enhancing the social, communication and behaviour modifications of a ten-year-old autistic child.
