Neurofeedback in psychiatric disorders

About This Video

Dr. Birbaumer has investigated the use of neuro-feedback techniques in the treatment of different psychiatric disorders. In psychopaths and in chronic schizophrenic patients he has seen encouraging improvements by training patients to increase or decrease the activation in different parts of their brain. In his view, the use of neuro-feedback in combination with other, established behavioral and psychopharmacological therapies is one promising application of modern brain imaging techniques.
