Neurotherapy of traumatic brain injury/posttraumatic stress symptoms in OEF/OIF veterans

J Neuropsychiatry Clin Neurosci. Spring 2012;24(2):237-40. doi: 10.1176/appi.neuropsych.11020041.

Abstract

The Flexyx Neurotherapy System (FNS), a novel variant of EEG biofeedback, was adapted for intervention with seven treatment-refractory Afghanistan/Iraq war veterans, and brought about significant decreases in bothersome neurobehavioral and posttraumatic stress symptoms. FNS may help ameliorate mixed trauma spectrum syndromes.
