neurofeedback, neuromodulation, neuroregulation, eeg biofeedback, fmri neurofeedback, tDCS, neurotherapy


In the following section selected articles related to neuroregulation modalities are summarized. While most have a focus on EEG-based neurofeedback, some come from the growing fMRI-based neurofeedback approaches as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation neuromodulation.  Of particular note, is the increase in prevalence of offerings from open access journals; many included here are from such journals, with direct url links to the articles.  The timeframe of these articles encompass from October 2013 through December 2014.
