The self-regulating brain and neurofeedback: Experimental science and clinical promise
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neurofeedback, one of the primary examples of self-regulation, designates a collection of techniques that train the brain and help to improve its function. Since coming on the scene in the 1960s, electroencephalography-neurofeedback has become a treatment vehicle for a host of mental disorders; however, its clinical effectiveness remains controversial. Modern imaging technologies of the living human brain (e.g., real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging) and increasingly rigorous research protocols that utilize such methodologies begin to shed light on the underlying mechanisms that may facilitate more effective clinical applications. In this paper we focus on recent technological advances in the field of human brain imaging and discuss how these modern methods may influence the field of neurofeedback. Toward this end, we outline the state of the evidence and sketch out future directions to further explore the potential merits of this contentious therapeutic prospect.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Interoception, the sensitivity to visceral sensations, is thought to be the fundamental basis for subjective feeling states, shaping our experiences of the world around us. Despite much speculation regarding the developmental origins of interoception, research in developmental samples has been restricted to older childhood due to significant methodological limitations. Therefore, the developmental trajectory of interoception, and the role it plays in emerging social, emotional and cognitive skills, remains unknown. Here, we present the first ever study of interoception in pre-verbal infants. We develop a novel behavioural measure of interoceptive sensitivity, and demonstrate that 5-month old infants do indeed have an implicit awareness of visceral sensations that can guide preferences in the environment. We also report the presence of a neural marker of interoceptive processing, the heartbeat evoked potential (HEP), which correlates with our behavioural measure and also shows state fluctuations according to emotional processing demands as it does in adults. This demonstrates that even at this early age, infants’ experiences of emotions appear to be closely influenced by their visceral reactions. Finally, we show that the extent to which infants’ HEPs are differentially amplified by negative emotions is associated with the negative emotional aspect of their temperament. Infants with a more negative temperament may be more influenced by their physiological responses during observation of negative emotions. These results have important implications for the development of social cognition and self-regulation, and consequently may play a determining role in infants’ later attachment, personality traits and cognitive abilities.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Interoception, the sensitivity to visceral sensations, plays an important role in homeostasis and guiding motivated behaviour. It is also considered to be fundamental to self-awareness. Despite its importance, the developmental origins of interoceptive sensitivity remain unexplored. We here provide the first evidence for implicit, flexible interoceptive sensitivity in 5-month old infants using a novel behavioural measure, coupled with an established cortical index of interoceptive processing. These findings have important implications for the understanding of the early developmental stages of self-awareness, self-regulation and socio-emotional abilities.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Advocates of neurofeedback make bold claims concerning brain regulation, treatment of disorders, and mental health. Decades of research and thousands of peer-reviewed publications support neurofeedback using electroencephalography (EEG-nf); yet, few experiments isolate the act of receiving feedback from a specific brain signal as a necessary precursor to obtain the purported benefits. Moreover, while psychosocial parameters including participant motivation and expectation, rather than neurobiological substrates, seem to fuel clinical improvement across a wide range of disorders, for-profit clinics continue to sprout across North America and Europe. Here we highlight the tenuous evidence supporting EEG-nf and sketch out the weaknesses of this approach. We challenge classic arguments often articulated by proponents of EEG-nf and underscore how psychologists and mental health professionals stand to benefit from studying the ubiquitous placebo influences that likely drive these treatment outcomes.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Neurofeedback with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI-nf) heralds new hope concerning the self-regulation of brain and behavior. Theoretically, modulating specific brain activations promises to tailor cognition, emotion, thought, and action; however, reducing complex mental health issues to circumscribed neural regions remains elusive. Empirically, findings from the vast majority of fMRI-nf experiments suggest that we can self-regulate diverse brain activations, yet replication of behavioral findings remains sparse. Here we provide a systematic review that integrates and synthesizes information from 78 primary fMRI-nf research experiments – the bulk of currently available information. To disentangle placebo influences and establish the specific effects of neurofeedback, we highlight the need for double-blind, sham-controlled studies with rigorous and standardized statistical analyses. We further elucidate the value of comparing neural activation and behavior after neurofeedback to pre-training baseline measures, initial trials, and data from control participants. To drive fMRI-nf toward clinical inclusion, relevant studies must confirm the sustainability, transferability, and practicality of fMRI-nf in patient populations. We can change brain activations with fMRI-nf; however, additional carefully designed experiments would have to unravel whether this technique constitutes an effective biobehavioral intervention.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
EEG neurofeedback appears to both improve normal brain function and treat a wide range of mental disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, depression, anxiety, insomnia, autism spectrum disorder, and alcoholism. Despite a relatively long history, however, the medical community continues to question the clinical utility of this technique. To earn widespread appellation as evidence-based medicine, neurofeedback must meet three challenges: 1) perform at least on par with standard-of-care treatments in randomized controlled trials for each disorder where neurofeedback purports to help; 2) consistently outperform highly comparable placebo control conditions (e.g., sham neurofeedback); and 3) establish a clear mechanism for the claimed therapeutic benefits. In this talk, we will elucidate the crosstalk between placebo science and neurofeedback, including fMRI-nf.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We aimed to better understand how we can use real-time brain imaging to train individuals to actively modify their neural processes and, in turn, achieve specialized states of consciousness. Throughout history, effective brain self-regulation has been the purview of a select few (e.g., expert meditators, hypnotic virtuosos). We investigated whether it is possible to leverage brain imaging to guide naïve participants to adopt expert brain states.
Both hypnosis and meditation demand particular body postures. And yet, when researchers brain imaging these states of consciousness, they often overlook postural constraints. We brain imaged participants in a variety of common postures (standing, sitting, reclined, lying) and found that posture influences brain activity sufficiently that future efforts would benefit from accounting for this variable.
Upon seeking to identify the best neural targets for using neurofeedback to induce altered states of consciousness, we identified that neurofeedback relies heavily on non-specific effects. That is to say, oftentimes, the act of receiving neural feedback itself has little effect compared to all other elements involved in the procedure of neurofeedback (e.g., expectation and motivation).
To continue to advance the field of neurofeedback it would behoove researchers to employ robust control groups and accounts for various confounding factors such as body posture.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Biofeedback is applied to target excessive and/or deficient physiological signals to help patients identifying and self-managing their symptoms. Biofeedback has been employed in psychiatric disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), mainly by using neural signals - neurofeedback. Recently, OCD has been integrated into the obsessive-compulsive and related disorders (OCD&RD) category (body dysmorphic, hoarding, trichotillomania/hair-pulling, and excoriation/skin-picking disorders). The efficacy of biofeedback for OCD&RD is still unknown. Our work provides a complete overview of publications assessing the therapeutic efficacy of biofeedback in OCD&RD with a systematic review and meta-analysis. We found ten studies involving 102 OCD participants (three randomized controlled trials) mostly applying neurofeedback (one publication used thermal biofeedback). Five neurofeedback studies were selected for meta-analysis (89 patients; two randomized controlled trials). The overall effect size within the treatment group varied between medium to large, but high heterogeneity and inconsistency values were found. The methodological quality was low indicating a high risk of bias. In conclusion, a beneficial effect of neurofeedback for OCD patients was found but also critical limitations on methodology, high heterogeneity among studies, and a putative reporting bias. Future research following high-quality guidelines should be conducted to address the efficacy of biofeedback approaches for OCD&RD.

Probing pro-environmental behaviour: A systematic review on its relationship with executive functions and self-regulation processes
Publication year: 2023

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0272494423002013?via%3Dihub
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Given the role of self-regulation and executive functions in enabling goal pursuit and top-down regulation of behaviour, it is plausible to assume that these factors would affect individuals’ ability to act upon their environmental concerns, hence contributing to explain individual differences in the performance of pro-environmental behaviour. This article examines the heterogeneous literature investigating the relationship of self-regulation processes (i.e., goal setting, monitoring and goal striving) and of executive functions (i.e., working memory, inhibitory control, and cognitive flexibility) with pro-environmental behaviour, with the aim of providing an extensive and unifying overview of this topic of research. We conducted a systematic literature review using the PRISMA protocol, searching three databases (Scopus, PubMed and PsycInfo). We included as records empirical studies on healthy adult participants, with no restrictions for the methodology, published in English in peer-reviewed journals. We excluded discussion, opinion, and review articles, as well as studies referring to human behaviours unrelated to environmental conservation, or referring to subjects other than individuals (e.g., households or organisations). After applying these criteria, 31 records with 41 individual studies with low estimated probability of bias were identified and included in the review. The reviewed literature suggests that greater top-down regulation is associated with increased engagement in pro-environmental behaviour. Yet, evidence is uneven for each self-regulation component and less robust for executive functions. Accordingly, we call for more research to be carried out to clarify the link between executive functions and self-regulation with respect to pro-environmental engagement, and to assess their intermingled contribution in reducing the environmental attitude-behaviour gap.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Probing pro-environmental behaviour: A systematic review on its relationship with executive functions and self-regulation processes

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Given the role of self-regulation and executive functions in enabling goal pursuit and top-down regulation of behaviour, it is plausible to assume that these factors would affect individuals’ ability to act upon their environmental concerns, hence contributing to explain individual differences in the performance of pro-environmental behaviour. This article examines the heterogeneous literature investigating the relationship of self-regulation processes (i.e., goal setting, monitoring and goal striving) and of executive functions (i.e., working memory, inhibitory control, and cognitive flexibility) with pro-environmental behaviour, with the aim of providing an extensive and unifying overview of this topic of research. We conducted a systematic literature review using the PRISMA protocol, searching three databases (Scopus, PubMed and PsycInfo). We included as records empirical studies on healthy adult participants, with no restrictions for the methodology, published in English in peer-reviewed journals. We excluded discussion, opinion, and review articles, as well as studies referring to human behaviours unrelated to environmental conservation, or referring to subjects other than individuals (e.g., households or organisations). After applying these criteria, 31 records with 41 individual studies with low estimated probability of bias were identified and included in the review. The reviewed literature suggests that greater top-down regulation is associated with increased engagement in pro-environmental behaviour. Yet, evidence is uneven for each self-regulation component and less robust for executive functions. Accordingly, we call for more research to be carried out to clarify the link between executive functions and self-regulation with respect to pro-environmental engagement, and to assess their intermingled contribution in reducing the environmental attitude-behaviour gap.
