CSUSB researchers advance ‘neurofeedback’ treatment for PTSDKVCRMay 21, 2018
Researchers at Cal State San Bernardino have found that the therapeutic treatment known as 'neurofeedback' is highly effective at treating PTSD —post-traumatic stress disorder. And the center's director says that's only the beginning of what it can do. KVCR's Benjamin Purper has more:
“Neurofeedback is a therapeutic treatment where patients learn how to self-regulate their brain activity by watching it displayed on a screen. The treatment has proven effective in helping people with anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorders, PTSD, and other conditions manage their symptoms.
“Dr. Connie McReynolds is the director of the Neurofeedback Center at California State University, San Bernardino. McReynolds describes neurofeedback sessions as a one-on-one interaction between the counselor and the patient. As they talk, a sensor placed on the patients’ scalp displays their brain activity onto a screen.”
