Can Neurofeedback Help to Cure a Broken Heart?
The short answer is that no research has been done! But there is some anecdotal evidence to support the possibility.
Anthropologist Helen Fisher, an expert on romantic love, and her research team took MRIs of people in love — and people who had just been dumped. They found that certain parts of the brain were overactive during these two states. She discusses it in her TED talk entitled The Brain in Love.
Recently, the professional rapper Dessa came across Dr. Fisher’s research and decided to experiment with neurofeedback in an effort to get over a past relationship.
