Washington Post article about neurofeedback

Posted by Hugh on March 24, 2015, at 0:57:07

Mary Lee Esty, a Bethesda clinical social worker, has a small study underway treating veterans with PTSD. In an earlier study of seven veterans who used neurofeedback, she reported, the results were promising.

These people [in the early study] initially had minimal function. They could not work, and many attempted suicide, she said. One is getting a PhD now. One has a full scholarship when he could not read after his head injury. All of them are doing well.

Kinda makes sense to me

Some mental health issues seem to be biological based and some are caused by a psychological trigger. PTSD id assume would fit into this category of a learned behavior and hence biofeedback could help some one to unlearn there psychological triggers

However it wouldn't surprise me if some people had a disposition or sensitivity because of a biological weakness

Interesting article
