The Current Evidence Levels for Biofeedback and Neurofeedback Interventions in Treating Depression: A Narrative Review

The current level of evidence for the usage of biofeedback and neurofeedback to treat depression is shown along with a detailed review of the studies in the field and a discussion of rationale for utilizing each protocol.

Can Exposure to Certain Urban Green Spaces Trigger Frontal Alpha Asymmetry in the Brain?—Preliminary Findings from a Passive Task EEG Study

The preliminary results show trends for the main effect of site on FAA, suggestive of stronger FAA in park compared to the control site, akin to more positive mood, and for the interaction between the site and scene, which suggests that even within the individual sites, there is variability depending on the specific scene.

The Efficacy of Neurofeedback in Patients with Major Depressive Disorder: An Open Labeled Prospective Study

It is suggested neurofeedback has significant effects in patients with major depressive disorder and could improve depressive symptoms significantly, and anxiety symptoms and clinical illness severity decreased significantly after neurofeedbacks.

The Efficacy of Neurofeedback in Patients with Major Depressive Disorder: An Open Labeled Prospective Study

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of neurofeedback on depressive symptoms and electrophysiological disturbances in patients with major depressive disorder. We recruited

The Relationships Between Heart Rate Variability and Electroencephalography Under Erect and Slouch Postures

The daytime cortical arousal among patients comorbid with MDD and insomnia was explored to explore the neuropsychopathological mechanism among patients with chronic insomnia.

Effect of Neurofeedback Training on Depression and Fatigue in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

NFB significantly reduced symptoms of depression and fatigue in patients with MS patients, compared to treatment as usual, and these effects were maintained the 2-month follow-up (p < .05).

Effect of Neurofeedback Training on Depression and Fatigue in Patients with Multiple Sclerosis

NFB significantly reduced symptoms of depression and fatigue in patients with MS patients, compared to treatment as usual, and these effects were maintained the 2-month follow-up (p < .05).

A study on effective of increasing right frontal alpha and decreasing left frontal alpha on treatment of major depressive disorder

Various studies have shown some relationship between brain wave abnormalies and depression. The current study aimed to examine the effectiveness of the real neurofeedback treatment compared with mock

Anxiety, Depression, and Sleep Disorders: Their Relationship and Reduction with Neurotherapy

This study investigated the relationship among anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances and the treatment of these three disorders through neurotherapy. Research suggests that these conditions
