If long-term change is predicated on changes at the synapses, then neurofeedback has to show that it can produce those changes. Hard-science physiological studies are saying it can. And, evidence has been accumulating for some time in the biofeedback and neurofeedback communities, e.g. that Heart Rate Variability Training (HRV) actually modifies the balance of glucocorticoids such as cortisol, DHEA (dehydoepiandosterone), and salivary IgA (immunoglobulin A); and that EEG training helps control muscle tension or panic attacks–thats cortical excitability evidence. It can also accomplish the same tyoe of up-regulation and down-regulation of the central nervous system that pharmacology prides itself on being the only agent of–and it does this without flooding the entire CNS wth chemical agents, which remain the body long after the intended effect has been accomplished.*
