Researchers in Austria have investigated the impact of neurofeedback training on brain structure and function and cognitive performance in patients with multiple sclerosis.
Neurofeedback training has been shown to improve cognitive function, according to Dr Daniela Pinter of the Medical University of Graz, Austria. However, the exact effects of neurofeedback training on brain structure and function have not been established.
In a pilot study, 14 patients underwent MRI (diffusion tensor imaging and resting-state functional MRI) before and after neurofeedback training. The training involved 10 sessions, performed at home over 3 to 4 weeks using a tele-rehabilitation system.
