Post Traumatic Stress Disorder causes changes in the limbic system, causing the system to get stuck in a state of hyperarousal. Neurofeedback trains the brain to relax and focus so that the body can process these bits of sensory information as nonthreatening. BrainPaint® uses AlphaTheta protocols that include delta inhibition so that if a traumatic flashback reoccurs, it can be viewed from a neutral emotional state.
Two studies of neurofeedback with combat veterans resulted in 100% of subjects no longer meeting criteria for diagnosis of PTSD (Peniston & Kulkosky, 1991; Peniston, Marrinan, Deming, & Kulkosky, 1993).
In an additional survey of non-identified data from 699 subjects with PTSD who used BrainPaint® software, a researcher from Harvard Medical School found that “Progress in PTSD symptoms was rapid among the population studied. After seven sessions, 84% report improvement in their symptoms, and after twenty sessions, 93% report improvement in their symptoms. As BrainPaint® is effective, relatively inexpensive, and with a negligible side-effect profile, it represents an important, innovative intervention" (Lowen, 2014).
