Neurofeedback is effective in enhancing the connectivity of two brain regions – the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex – whose lack of connectivity is linked with heightened anxiety, thereby making sustained reduction in anxiety.
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of treatment which is considered generally safe. The side effects that could occur (e.g. fatigue, low energy, headaches, etc.) are found to be mild and temporary, resolving within 24-48 hours after the session.
The number of neurofeedback training sessions required depends on the severity of the person’s anxiety as well as their response to the training sessions.
