When it comes to mental health, the way that behavioral conditions are regarded generally falls within two models. There is the model that is most commonly recognized, in which these conditions are classified as “disorders.” Then, in a holistic approach to psychology, these very same conditions can be classified as appropriate responses to trauma, or another psychological stimulus.

These opposing perspectives might shed some insight into the important question: Can mental disorders, or conditions, be trained out of the brain? Well, it appears that the answer is not simple, as with anything brain-related.
Cognitive training, specifically neurofeedback, has proven to make a positive impact on the presence of troubled mental function. However, there is no statistical support that is effective in all cases and people.
If there is a chance of alleviating disorderly or ill cognitive function, neurofeedback may provide the ideal specialized treatment, though results vary from case to case.
