This study aimed to find an effective intervention measure through establishing the correlation between self-regulation (control over life style) and height growth through neuro-feedback training. 40 elementary students in grades two to four with height growth programs (20 experimental group students, 20 control group students) were examined for the changes before and after undergoing neuro-feedback training. The experiment lasted for three months with one 30-minute training session two times a week. After analyzing the differences in self-regulation among the control group with no neuro-feedback training and the experimental group with neuro-feedback training, the differences in height growth were analyzed. First of all, there were positive changes in self-regulation of the experimental group compared with the control group. Secondly, the experimental group showed larger changes in height growth. In conclusion, neuro-feedback training had positive effects upon the self-regulation that adjusts the acquired factors of height growth, which led to positive effects.

본 연구는 뉴로피드백 훈련을 적용하여 생활습관을 조절하는 자기조절력과 키 성장간의 상관성을 규명함으로 써 키 성장의 효과적인 중재 방안에 대한 해법을 제시하고자 실시하였다. 이를 위해 키 성장 프로그램을 실시하고 있는 초등학교 2학년~4학년 학생 40명(실험군 20명, 대조군 20명) 대상으로 뉴로피드백 훈련 전 후의 변화를 확인하였다. 실험기간은 3개월간(주 2회), 훈련시간은 1회 30분이였다. 뉴로피드백 훈련을 적용한 실험군과 대조군의 자기조절력 차이를 분석한 후, 키 성장 차이를 비교 분석하였다. 첫째, 뉴로피드백 훈련을 적용한 실험군이 대조군에 비해 자기조절력에 유의미한 변화가 있었다. 둘째, 뉴로피드백 훈련을 적용한 실험군이 대조군에 비해 더 크게 키 성장의 변화가 있었다. 이상의 결과를 종합하면 뉴로피드백 훈련이 성장기 학생들에게 있어 키 성장의 후천적 요인들 중 생활습관을 조절하는 자기조절력에 긍정적인 영향을 미치며, 그로 인해 키 성장에도 긍정적인 영향을 미친다는 것이 확인되었다.
