      What is the actual therapy? It looks like of interest to me. Are they working with you to learn to control some of your neural networks?

      Seems exactly this, to learn to control or influence one's neural excitability. Problem is they recommend 30 sessions 1.5h each, and the site is a 4h drive from my place, so it’s a challenge logistically.

      Czesc Mentos, do you know, or does anyone know the difference between Neurofeedback and "Slow Cortical Potential Neurofeedback"? I don't get it.

      I remember that a pharmacist told me that Neurofeedback might maybe help me. But sessions cost around €70 and aren't covered by social healthcare.

      I read on the Internet that there seems to be no evidence that Neurofeedback is effective (not only with tinnitus but in general).

      So I've been reluctant to try it.

      Is this the same as Neurofeedback?

      I tried Neurofeedback which was customized to my EEG results. I had approx 40-50 sessions. It had no effect on my mood or tinnitus at all. It's not effective in my eyes.

      Bonjour, I don't know the details either, only what I managed to read in the publication. What I understood they try to address specific qEEG abnormality related to Slow Cortical Potentials with dedicated Neurofeedback method for tinnitus. When I asked other popular Neurofeedback center in my area about it they replied they know SCP theory, but they don't offer SCP treatment (without disclosing the reason). So it seems SCP Neurofeedback is unique but kill me I have no idea about the detailed differences. They told me about 30 sessions would be required, 1.5h each. It's around 25 EUR each, total would be around 750 EUR.

      It's logistics causing trouble since I have a regular job and little child to care for and I can't afford 6 weeks from home, hence I'm trying to find another Neurofeedback center in my town that would be interested to implement this method.
