S254. Beyond Pain in Fibromyalgia: Limbic Related EEG-Neurofeedback Training Improves Sleep and Affect

      Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain syndrome where somatic and affective dimensions are entangled. This mind-body interaction manifests, beyond pain, in disordered sleep and emotion dysregulation. It has been argued that FM chronicity stems from abnormal function of limbic areas, such as the amygdala. Yet, it is unclear to what extent limbic abnormality underlies the different dimensions of FM. To address this, we employed a novel fMRI-inspired EEG-neurofeedback (NF) (Amygdala Electrical Finger Print (Amyg-EFP)) in FM patients, targeting deep limbic structures. We expected that successful NF learning will impact affective more than somatic related dimensions.
