Controlling Pain with Neurofeedback

Email This Entry

Posted by Zack Lynch

images.jpgEmily Singer at the MIT Tech Review has started series of articles exploring how new approaches to brain imaging could improve treatment for neurological and psychiatric disorders. The first installment, published on December 20, examined how patients can use real-time fMRI images of their own brains to control chronic pain. Today's installment, Imaging the Unconsciousness, explores how researchers are using fMRI to understand different aspects of psychiatric illnesses. It is great to see another person reporting on how neurotechnology is influencing humankind.
