Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment: Neurocognitive Feedback

What looks like a video game actually helps Polly Little fight Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a mysterious disease that debilitates both body and mind, "I wasn't even able to do simple things like giving a store clerk the right amount of change." The video is actually part of a therapy called Neurocognitive Feedback that works to retrain abnormal brain waves.

Researchers like Dr. Myra Preston, a neurophysiologist, believe they are responsible for the memory and focus problems many patients like Polly experience, "It's like a physical therapy exercise program for the brain." The key is a brain map that documents the brain wave irregularities and tracks the progress of the therapy. Dr. Preston patented the mapping method, "The brains of Chronic Fatigue patients look like those of people who are asleep."

Patient Judy Noblitt had her map updated, so Dr. Preston could see if the feedback therapy was working. Like many CF patients, Judy quickly gave out and couldn't complete the mental task. It's a symptom common in Chronic Fatigue and one that often leads to misdiagnosis. Judy says, "They say, 'You're depressed. You need to see a psychiatrist. There's nothing really wrong with you.'" But, the abnormal brainwaves on Judy's brain map told a different story. Her sleep waves dominate her brain activity while she's awake, but Preston says the map also shows feedback therapy is helping her sleepy brain stay awake longer, "Overall, Judy's brain is functioning about 40 percent better."

Preston notes the map and therapy can't cure the brain wave malfunction, but they can help patients like Judy and Polly gain a better quality of life. Polly agrees, "I've been able to get off quite a few of my medications, and no other treatment that I've done have I been able to do that." Preston says her Chronic Fatigue patients average about 60 one-hour neurocognitive feedback therapy sessions. There is also a home unit available.
