Rex and Dr. Jeanne Sinquefield are committed to helping researchers find a way to better treat autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.
The Sinquefield Charitable Foundation’s efforts in this area include funding studies of neurofeedback therapy at the University of Missouri.
Neurofeedback is a way in which humans train the brain to help improve its ability to function. By challenging the brain — much as one challenges his or her body in physical exercise — researchers may be able to help children improve the way they control attention and social behaviors.
Dr. Sinquefield also serves as President of the Neurofeedback and Applied Neuroscience Foundation in California, which provides technical assistance and support to ongoing research.
