Neurofeedback for Depression
Studies have shown that mood is positive when the left frontal area of your brain is more active than the right frontal area and that mood is poor when the right is more active than the left.
This well-established finding can be directly applied with neurofeedback for depression. Controlled studies showed that mood was improved in college students when the left front side of the brain was trained to be more active than the right using neurofeedback. One study showed that patterns of thinking also changed. Neurofeedback for depression can result in more positive thinking patterns and a reduction in patterns of thinking that have are associated with depression.
