CSUSB Palm Desert treatment effective for treating PTSD in veterans

PALM DESERT, Calif.- Neurofeedback, a therapeutic treatment displaying a patient's brain activity to teach self-regulation of conditions like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, has proven effective in treating the condition in veterans, according to a study conducted at Cal State San Bernardino Palm Desert's Neurofeedback Center.

Nearly 80 percent of veterans who participated in the campus' study showed improvement in auditory and visual attention after 20 half-hour treatment sessions, according to a paper recently published by the Neurofeedback Center. Read the full article...

Neurofeedback works because we have greater information regarding the way the brain functions and how the brain continually changes throughout our lifetime.  This is called neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity - The brain has the ability to continually change throughout life. By understanding that we can change our brain through the use of neurofeedback, we now know that we can improve many conditions that have limited children and adults preventing them from living their best life.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback, also known as cognitive rehabilitation or EEG biofeedback, is a ground-breaking technique that challenges the brain to function better.

This powerful brain-based technique has been successfully helping clients around the world for more than 30 years. It is a noninvasive process with dramatic results for a multitude of symptoms. The effectiveness of neurofeedback for adults and children with a wide variety of symptoms has been repeatedly concluded in numerous research studies.

Neurofeedback works by training the brain to function at its maximum potential, which is similar to the way the body is exercised, toned and maintained. The technology is safe and effective for children and adults ages 5 to 95.

"Train your attention, decrease anxiety or depression, alleviate chronic pain, lessen behaviors that interfere with living your best life," says Dr. Connie McReynolds, who established the neurofeedback service in 2011 as director of the institute.

The Neurofeedback office is now open at CSUSB's Palm Desert Campus (PDC). Veterans and students are welcome to stop by and speak with our neurofeedback clinician. Veterans may also visit the Veteran's Success Center located in the Health Sciences building.
