Neurofeedback of Amygdala Activity for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Conditions

Diseases of the Nervous System | Mental Health & Behavioral Research

Phase I-II

What is the purpose of this trial?

Brief Summary:

The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of neurofeedback (NF) of real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (rt-fMRI) data of the amygdala with regards to the reduction of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms.

A secondary purpose of this study is to use fMRI as a method of investigating brain function in individuals with PTSD. This study approach provides a tool for probing the neurobiology of PTSD by (1) testing the critical role of the amygdala in this disorder, and by (2) examining how amygdala connectivity is related to both amygdala regulation and clinical symptoms.
