The aim of neurofeedback (NFB) is to deliberately influence brain activity in the sense of self-regulation. The NFB with real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (rtfMRI) provides an innovative method offering the opportunity to achieve changes in focal cortical areas and subcortical regions of the brain. Clinical applications target the modulation of activity, e.g. in brain regions associated with the processing of emotions. Promising results on neurobiological parameters underlying the modulation of neuronal activity as well as functional connectivity between different brain regions were observed. In addition, various studies have provided evidence for apositive effect on clinical symptoms, e.g. in patients with depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and addictive diseases. In light of the importance of personalized therapeutic regimens, NFB with rtfMRI may represent apromising approach for an individualized therapeutic strategy.
