Neurofeedback for Tinnitus Treatment - Review and Current Concepts
“An effective treatment to completely alleviate chronic tinnitus symptoms has not yet been discovered.
However, recent developments suggest that neurofeedback (NFB), a method already popular in the treatment of
other psychological and neurological disorders, may provide a suitable alternative. NFB is a non-invasive
method generally based on electrophysiological recordings and visualizing of certain aspects of brain activity as
positive or negative feedback that enables patients to voluntarily control their brain activity and thus triggers
them to unlearn typical neural activity patterns related to tinnitus.”
“To date, neurofeedback as well as electrophysiological tinnitus studies lack general guidelines that are crucial
to produce more comparable and consistent results. Even though neurofeedback has already shown promising
results for chronic tinnitus treatment, further research is needed in order to develop more sophisticated protocols
that are able to tackle the individual needs of tinnitus patients more specifically.”
Neurofeedback for treating tinnitus
“Many individuals with tinnitus have abnormal oscillatory brain activity. Led by this finding, we have
developed a way to normalize such pathological activity by neurofeedback techniques (Weisz et al. (2005).
PLoS Med., 2: e153). This is achieved mainly through enhancement of tau activity, i.e., oscillatory activity
produced in perisylvian regions within the alpha frequency range (8-12 Hz) and concomitant reduction in delta
power range (0.5-4 Hz). This activity is recorded from electrodes placed on the frontal scalp.”
“We have found that modification of the tau-to- delta ratio significantly reduces tinnitus intensity. Participants
who successfully modified their oscillatory pattern profited from the treatment to the extent that the tinnitus
sensation became completely abolished. Overall, this neurofeedback training was significantly superior in
reducing tinnitus-related distress than frequency discrimination training.”
