Control Over Brain Activation and Pain Learned by Using Real-Time Functional MRI by deCharms RC, Maeda F, Glover GH, Ludlow D, Pauly JM, Soneji D, Gabrieli JD, Mackey SC. If an individual can learn to directly control activation of localized regions within the brain, this approach might provide control over the neurophysiological mechanisms that mediate behavior and cognition and could potentially provide a different route for treating disease.

Case Study of Trigeminal Neuralgia Using Neurofeedback and Peripheral Biofeedback by Sime A, LCSW. Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by brief episodes of extremely intense facial pain often radiating down the jaw. These episodes can occur spontaneously or be triggered by light touch, chewing or changes in temperature.

A Retrospective, Follow-up Study of Biofeedback-Assisted Relaxation Therapy in Patients with Post-Traumatic Headache by Ham LP and Packard RC. Although biofeedback in the treatment of migraine and tension-type headache has been widely researched, there is little research examining biofeedback therapy in posttraumatic headache (PTH).

Treatment of Fibromyalgia Incorporating EEG-Driven Stimulation: A Clinical Outcomes Study by Mueller HH, Donaldson CC, Nelson DV, Layman M. Thirty patients from a private clinical practice who met the 1990 American College of Rheumatology criteria for fibromyalgia syndrome (FS) were followed prospectively through a brainwave-based intervention known as electroencephalograph (EEG)-driven stimulation or EDS.

Self-regulation of Slow Cortical Potentials in Children with Migraine: An Exploratory Study by Siniatchkin M, Hierundar A, Kropp P, Kuhnert R, Gerber WD, Stephani U. Migraine patients are characterized by increased amplitudes of slow cortical potentials (SCPs), representing pronounced excitability of cortical networks. The present study investigated the efficiency of biofeedback training of SCPs in young migraineurs.
