In many forms of therapy it has been shown to benefit patients to provide useful feedback of their performance. For conditions related to cognitive and mental activity providing feedback has previously proven challenging due to inability to measure and interpret brain activity. However, with recent advances in brain science and computing it is now possible to reliably obtain measures of brain activity related to particular cognitive states and provide feedback. We are currently developing such a neurofeedback system using fMRI, ultimately for use in pain therapy, and the student will assist in this development.
