Neurofeedback to Help Smokers Kick the Habit

Experts in toxicology, pulmonary medicine, neuroscience, and behavioral therapy have recently come together to help smokers quit. Preliminary results show that the neuro-feedback intervention protocol can cause lasting changes in the brain cortex as people try to stop smoking. Researchers have designed a specific neuro-feedback intervention protocol to combat addiction.

“Smoking is the largest avoidable cause of lung diseases, morbidity and premature mortality worldwide,” says project coordinator Panagiotis Bamidis. “The purpose of our project is to deliver new knowledge regarding the cost-effectiveness of innovative smoking cessation interventions. This approach should improve the efficiency of public policy strategies aiming to reduce smoker numbers and therefore help to prevent lung diseases.”

Pain Management with the Assistance of Neurofeedback

chronic painChronic pain is notoriously difficult to treat, and like many complex disorders is best handled by a team of health care practitioners. Chronic (long lasting) pain is associated with a shorter life span, as well as co-morbidity with heart and respiratory disease. People with chronic pain tend to have higher rates of depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

In Western medicine, the first line of defense is opioid pain killers, which often come with side effects, and can cause other health problems. Psychological treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy have been shown to be helpful. With alternative therapies such as neurofeedback, acupuncture,  or yoga, pain can be managed without side effects, decreasing the need for medication, decreasing co-morbidity with other illnesses, and improving the patient’s overall quality of life.
