New Hope for Sufferers of Chronic Pain [pdf]
by Othmer S

ABSTRACT
Pain is one of several sensory systems that keep us apprised of the status of our bodies. As we hurry through our daily lives, we usually view pain at the very least as an inconvenience, if not a major disruption. It's fortunate that we have our pain sensors-they provide a valuable warning to us that we need to stop and take care of ourselves.


Research Papers

Controlled EEG Alpha Feedback Training in Normals and Headache Patients (author's translation) [abs.]
by Lehmann D, Lang W, Debruyne P

ABSTRACT
Headache patients and healthy controls underwent alpha-EEG feedback training in 12 sessions. The present study does not support the literature which reports alpha increase by feedback training.

A Retrospective, Follow-up Study of Biofeedback-Assisted Relaxation Therapy in Patients with Post-Traumatic Headache [abs.]
by Ham LP and Packard RC

ABSTRACT
Although biofeedback in the treatment of migraine and tension-type headache has been widely researched, there is little research examining biofeedback therapy in posttraumatic headache (PTH).


Treatment of Fibromyalgia Incorporating EEG-Driven Stimulation: A Clinical Outcomes Study [abs.]
by Mueller HH, Donaldson CC, Nelson DV, Layman M

ABSTRACT
Thirty patients from a private clinical practice who met the 1990 American College of Rheumatology criteria for fibromyalgia syndrome (FS) were followed prospectively through a brainwave-based intervention known as electroencephalograph (EEG)-driven stimulation or EDS.


Self-regulation of Slow Cortical Potentials in Children with Migraine: An Exploratory Study [abs.]
by Siniatchkin M, Hierundar A, Kropp P, Kuhnert R, Gerber WD, Stephani U

ABSTRACT
Migraine patients are characterized by increased amplitudes of slow cortical potentials (SCPs), representing pronounced excitability of cortical networks. The present study investigated the efficiency of biofeedback training of SCPs in young migraineurs.
