Increased neuromodulation ability through EEG connectivity neurofeedback with simultaneous fMRI for emotion regulation
The results suggest using the connectivity-based neurofeedback for emotion regulation and alternative therapeutic approaches for mental disorders with more effectiveness and higher volitional ability to control brain and mental function.
A Sparse EEG-Informed fMRI Model for Hybrid EEG-fMRI Neurofeedback Prediction
A sparse regression model able to exploit EEG only to predict NF-fMRI or NF-EEG-f MRI in motor imagery tasks is proposed and it is shown that one of the proposed NF-predictors significanlty improves over what EEG can provide alone (without the learning phase), and correlates at 0.74 in median with the ground-truth.
Learning 2-in-1: towards integrated EEG-fMRI-neurofeedback
1D and 2D integrated feedbacks are effective but also appear to be complementary and could be used in combination in a bimodal NF training program and suggest that the 2D feedback encourages subjects to explore their strategies to recruit more spe-cific brain patterns.
Probing fMRI brain connectivity and activity changes during emotion regulation by EEG neurofeedback
The results reveal the neurobiological substrate of emotion regulation by the EEG neurofeedbacks and separate the effect of the neurofeedback and the recall of the autobiographical memories.
One-Class FMRI-Inspired EEG Model for Self-Regulation Training
An EEG prediction model of amygdala activity from a single electrode based on a time/frequency representation of the EEG data with varying time-delay is introduced and the ability to modulate brain-activity in a neurofeedback setting using feedback generated by the model is demonstrated.
Feature analysis for correlation studies of simultaneous EEG-fMRI data: A proof of concept for neurofeedback approaches
A NF real-time functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (rt-fMRI), combined with electroencephalography (EEG) to train social communication skills and the finding of significant correlations of simultaneously measured signals in distinct modalities is promising.
Real‐time fMRI neurofeedback of the mediodorsal and anterior thalamus enhances correlation between thalamic BOLD activity and alpha EEG rhythm
The results demonstrate the potential of the rtfMRI‐nf with simultaneous EEG for noninvasive neuromodulation studies of human brain function and suggest that the temporal correlation between the MD BOLD activity and posterior alpha EEG power is modulated by the interaction between theMD and the inferior precuneus.


Self-Regulation of Amygdala Activation Using Real-Time fMRI Neurofeedback
The findings demonstrate that healthy subjects can learn to regulate their amygdala activation using rTFMRI neurofeedback, suggesting possible applications of rtfMRI neuro feedback training in the treatment of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders.
Real-Time fMRI
The authors describe the implementation and application of real-time fMRI with particular emphasis on the self-regulation of local brain activity and the investigation of brain-function relationships, which represents a promising new approach to cognitive neuroscience.
Self‐regulation of regional cortical activity using real‐time fMRI: The right inferior frontal gyrus and linguistic processing
The present study confirms the efficacy of fMRI‐biofeedback for noninvasive self‐regulation of circumscribed brain activity and supports a role for the right IFG in the processing of emotional information and evaluation of affective salience.
Decoding fMRI brain states in real-time
Real-Time Self-Regulation of Emotion Networks in Patients with Depression
In a proof-of-concept study, eight patients with depression learned to upregulate brain areas involved in the generation of positive emotions during four neurofeedback sessions, and their clinical symptoms improved significantly.
