Can we train our brains to increase feelings of happiness?
Our study investigates an investigational treatment for teens at risk for suicide attempts called neurofeedback training. In neurofeedback training, you are trying to control your brain function on purpose. Teen participants will see their brain activity and recall positive memories to try to change their levels of brain activity. They will do this inside a scanner, which is a non-intrusive and safe way to look at how the brain functions.
If this study is successful, it may result in new treatments for suicide risk. Help researchers learn more about brain training and see if you are eligible!
