Neurofeedback study

 

Real-time fMRI neurofeedback is a promising advanced, non-invasive technique that offers the possibility to influence brain networks without secondary negative effects. This technique has been successfully used in the clinical setting and has been proven to restore abnormal levels of brain activity in several disorders.

This technique has never been used in FND patients and thus, it opens a potentially ground-breaking new route into research, merging fundamental neuroscientific research and clinical application.

This study aims to enable FND patients to train, voluntarily, specific brain areas responsible for their symptoms and restore the functioning of the brain networks responsible for their symptoms.
