This article discusses the history of biofeedback, the use of quantitative EEG (QEEG) to develop protocols to target symptoms associated with psychiatric disorders, and the use of more advanced forms of neurofeedback (eg, low-resolution electromagnetic tomography [LORETA]) to target hubs and circuits. The ability to target circuits fits well with the NIH Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework to study mental disorders.
