Int J Psychophysiol. 2018 Jan;123:103-110 This study investigates the physiological basis of effects of skin conductance biofeedback on anxiety disorders, depressive disorders and stress
Reactive Heart Rate Variability and Cardiac Entropy in Children with Internalizing Disorder and Healthy Controls. Fiskum C1,2, Andersen TG3, Flaten MA3, Aslaksen PM4, Bornas X5, Jacobsen K3. Appl Psychophysiol Biofeedback. 2019 Jul 12. Atypical vagal reactivity has been linked to internalizing psychopathology and less adaptive emotion regulation, but reactive cardiac entropy is largely unexplored.
Efficacy of Biofeedback Therapy in Clinical Practice for the Management of Chronic Constipation and Fecal Incontinence. Parker CH, Henry S, Liu LWC. J Can Assoc Gastroenterol. 2019 Aug;2(3):126-131 BACKGROUND :Chronic constipation (CC) and fecal incontinence (FI) are often secondary to pelvic floor neuromuscular sensory or motor dysfunction. Biofeedback therapy (BFT) uses visual and verbal
Efficacy of psychological treatment for headache disorder: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Lee HJ, Lee JH, Cho EY, Kim SM Yoon S. BACKGROUND: Headache disorder is not only a common complaint but also a global burden. Pharmacotherapeutic and non-pharmacotherapeutic approaches have been developed for its treatment and prophylaxis. The present study included a systematic
Clinical validation of a non-invasive electrodermal biofeedback device useful for reducing chronic perceived pain and systemic inflammation. Chrousos GP, Boschiero D. This study was performed to evaluate the potential clinical usefulness of a new non-invasive electrodermal biofeedback device in reducing perceived pain levels and chronic systemic inflammation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This multicenter study was
Autonomic biofeedback therapy in epilepsy. Nagai Y. Pharmacological intervention is a mainstay for treatment of epilepsy. However, a third of patients with epilepsy remain drug resistant. Behavioural treatments such as biofeedback training can be potential effective alternative interventions for drug resistant epilepsy. This paper describes a biofeedback therapy in which the training of patients
Real-time use of audio-biofeedback can improve postural sway in patients with degenerative ataxia. Fleszar Z, Mellone S, Giese M, Tacconi C, Becker C, Schöls L, Synofzik M, Ilg W. Cerebellar ataxia essentially includes deficient postural control. It remains unclear whether augmented sensory information might help cerebellar patients, as the cerebellum underlies processing of various

Lin IM, Fan SY, Yen CF, Yeh YC, Tang TC, Huang MF, Liu TL, Wang PW, Lin HC, Tsai HY, Tsai YC1. OBJECTIVE: Autonomic imbalance is considered a psychopathological mechanism underlying major depressive disorder
